  1. Good afternoon to all... I’m currently in the market for replacement coaming pads for my 2005 Robalo R260. While I haven’t had much luck in finding any online, I know having my current pads reupholstered is an option. In either case, I’ll have to remove the pads and currently don’t know how to do that. Any help in offering an explanation and/or avenues to explore for replacement pads would be greatly appreciated. Hope everyone is staying safe during these times and happy boating.
  2. I have a 2014 R200 's with a 70 gal tank. At the beginning of the season I had 195 hours. I now have 213 hours. The gas gauge reads 1/2 tank, it seemed to stop going down. I put in 15 gal and it didn't go up. Any help and suggestions to troubleshoot and repair would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Anybody running an R305 with Yamaha 350s that can give me there honest opinion, I would greatly appreciate it? Performance, flywheel issue?, any other issues positive or negative??
  4. I purchased a Robalo 22 Caymen from Bob Hewes in Miami, FL Last November. Since I had the boat I have had multiple issues including almost sinking. I have already filed one warranty claim and I am in the process of filing another warranty claim now. My first claim had to do with shotty workmanship on the bait wells and seals around the compartments. The hose came off in mid travel and filled the inner compartment with water. I just made it back to my dock before sinking. The warranty covered the repairs but no one would guarantee or tell me what will happen to my boat when the salt water that filled the inner compartment starts to corrode the wires. Now, a few months later I have a blister growing on the side of the boat. This boat is still less than 1 year old. I was sent to a boat repair shop that said they can fix the issue but they made it clear that within 2 years the coloring on the spot will not match the rest of the hull color. The worst part is the mechanics told me that I bought a lemon of a boat and that they have already worked on similar issues with other Caymens. What happened to Robalo? I paid more for a Robalo boat because I thought we were buying a quality name. This is an absolute nightmare--I am now trying to have my dealership exchange the hull. Unfortunately, I don't think Bob Hewes is very responsive. My next stop will be blasting these issues all over Social Media and I plan on going to the Fl. State Attorney.
  5. Anyone have a high res robalo logo?
  6. Looking to get some information from someone who has repowered an older robalo R2660 (I have an 89) with 4 stroke engines. Boat sits heavy in the back wondering how the weight difference impacted it. Any information would be great.
  7. Hi, just purchased a 1998 Robalo 19.2 feet, there was another drainage hole above where you plug the boat before going out on the water, that was recently covered. Whats the best thing to do leave it covered or drill it out and install the brass flapping system? Please help. Not sure why someone would cover it.
  8. Just bought a 2013 r207 with a Yamaha 150. I use it in the Northern Chesapeake, Bohemia, Sassafrass, Elk and Susquehanna river areas. I have mostly used it for wakeboarding, skiing and tubing with the family so far but am looking forward to switching over to fishing now that the weather is changing. It does a great job at pulling all 225 lbs of me right out of the water on the wakeboard. We had the ski tow bar installed and it does a great job of keeping the line out of the water. It's also a really convenient grab bar when climbing up the ladder on the stern. I have had a few minor electrical issues that my dealer was great about addressing. My gas gauge started reading empty all the time, my horn blew out and my radio would turn on and off irregularly. My dealer just replaced all of them immediately and at no cost obviously. Other than that, I have had no issues. Overall, I am really happy. I did add a stabilizer to the outboard and it pops right up on plane without losing any top end speed(top end is 43 mph). It also really helps with porpoising when following or going against the tide and when crossing other people's wakes. I like the heaviness of the boat. It feels a lot more stable and seaworthy than most of the 20 footers I've been on. There is lots of convenient storage and the seating is comfortable. I noticed for 2014 that Robalo upgraded the seats with the fold-up leaning bolsters and an extra set of cleats in the middle instead of just the two each fore and aft. I had my dealer install an additional set of cleats amidships for spring lines and for a solid place to attach bumpers at the dock. The bolster seat would be nice as I hardly ever sit in the captains chair, I usually just stand. My last boat was a 22' Baja with the 454 that cracked the 60mph mark even in chop. With my new boat, I was nervous about whether the Yammy 150 would be beefy enough to satisfy me. I'm sure I could put an High Output Evinrude 200 on there and get well into the 50's, but 43 mph is plenty for what we want to do with a family fishing/skiing boat and the engine is quiet, efficient and reliable so far. Looking back, I have no regrets about the choice of motor. I think it is perfect for the boat. Good luck and happy boating to everyone. Glad to be here.
  9. I bought 2008 R225 and trying to figure out where the bilge water is coming in from??? I noticed that there is a hole straight below where the aft access panel (for the batteries, pump, water tank, etc...) where the water is moving back and forth. where is the water from the hole coming from? I will take a pic after work today...
