Hi folks, I am looking at buying a 2014 Robalo 222, it has a 250 HP 2014 Yamaha with 130 hrs. The purpose of the boat is to do a coastal fishing charter in the South Pacific. I don't have to spend a lot of time to get to the fishing grounds as its mostly coastal fishing. So the big issue is that I want to spend as little as possible on fuel and I will troll for yellowfin, tuna, wahoo, etc. So I am thinking of replacing the engine with a 150 or 175 hp Yammy. Here are my questions: 1) At what RPM does the 250HP run to troll? Is it too powerful to troll at slow RPMS? 2) How much gas will that use? 3) How would that gas consumption compare with a 150 or 175? Will the RPMS needed to troll be pretty close to the 250? Any idea on the amount of gas used for trolling with the different engine. 4) Can anyone weigh in on the performance of running a 222 with the two smaller engines? 5) Could you have a kicker engine on the 222? What would be a good size kicker engin. Thanks Patrick
Hi Folks, I have to remove the T top from a 2014 Robalo 222. Here are my questions. 1) Is it easy to do that after the fact? Is it glued down? 2) Are the screws visible? Is it as easy as just unscrewing it? 3) Is there anything special to consider when I re-assemble it? Thanks for your input. Patrick PS. the reason I am doing this is because I have to get this boat into a 40ft High cube container and it won't fit with the T top.
