    Lifting eyes on R200

    I have read the owners manual for my 2018 R200 and it only shows two lifting points for straps. I want to pull my boat out of the water to repair my transducer mount. I have two davits available. One has a spreader bar for the stern the other will pick up the bow. My question is are the lifting eyes on the boat suitable for this? I will have the boat “hanging for about a half day. The davits are rated at 5,500# each.

    Lenco Zincs?

    The factory supplied trim tab zincs don’t last very long. Mine were almost gone after 2 months. I replaced them with the next larger size, I think 4”. My boat stays in the water all summer. You better check the one mounted to the bottom of the motor bracket just above the drain plug on your boat.

    Looking at the pictures you posted of your seat bracket it looks like the mounting holes are slotted and if loosened the seat bracket can be moved back a little bit to let the seat cover the opening.

    I have to look at my boat but I think my bracket is a little farther to the stern. My seats completely cover the opening. It looks like if you bent the piece of metal a little that would solve the problem. It looks like you can get a piece os 2x on edge and hit it a couple of times with a hammer you can bend the piece towards the stern without damaging it or the paint . Does that make sense? I’m with you on this problem. I am going to use your copper tubing flare idea this weekend. I was thinking of using the same gasket material used on the live well on the rear seat areas. Did you put one or two copper drains on each seat?

    I am confused how does the seat not cover the opening? The gasket you put on shouldn’t cause that to happen.

    winterizing

    Close the through hull valve open the top of the strainer and pour in antifreeze while the pump is running.

    Have you noticed less water in your bilge since putting in the drains? Do you think the wearhestrip would stick better to the bottom of the seat?

    2018 R200 I Need Help

    I am trying to order a Carver cover for my 2018 R200 with bimini. The people I am ordering it from want to know what the measurement is for the windshield hand rail from the deck. My boat is having some warranty work done and is about 100 miles from where I am. I won’t be able to check the measurement for a couple of weeks. I am wondering if someone who has the same boat could help me out with the measurement.

    It can be removed but it sticks pretty good. Try it on a place to see how hard it is to remove.

    What do you think of using clear silicone RTV instead of the weather stripping. A bead of RTV 1/4” or a little less thick should do the trick. What do you think?

    Great idea I too have been trying to solve the same problem. I never thought about copper tubing with a flare. My next project as soon as my boat comes out of the water next week. Can you add a picture of the finished installation? Thanks again.
