After a couple of outings on my rough riding Seaark, my wife decided we needed a smoother riding boat. I told her if she wanted a better ride, to go buy one. So, that's what she did. She is now the proud owner of a robalo R180 Center Console with a Yamaho 115. Smooth ride, fast, handles nicely.. I think I'm gonna really like it. The only problem is that she said I can't get fish slime in it. Havn't figured out a work-around for that yet..LOL

I think you are really gonna like it. We have had our Robalo 230 for over 20 years. They make really good boats. Congrats to y'all on the new rig cheers

I've had some time to really look at it inside and out and I'm impressed. All of the lockers are nicely finished with no raw fiberglass to cut or scratch. All of the doors and hatches are a good fit like someone really took pride in putting it together. The biggest shock was how neat the wiring in the console is. Everything is bundled and wiring goes to terminal strips instead if being zip tied into a bundle. All in all, it looks like a quality rig.
