  2. steering wheel

    My 261 was recently delivered with the same issue. We had them flip the helm 180° so it stilts more forward and works out terrific. We do not have an issue with the steering wheel hitting our 1040xs Garmin hope this helps
  3. New ride delivered COBIA 261cc

    My apologies but I am still figuring out how to use this messaging. I had the boat offshore in a honest 2 foot with occasional 3 foot chop east @10-15mph. It surprised me, I ran the boat at 4000rps with a moderate trim up to 4800 rpm .It was stable without pounding and dry as a bone ( not a drop anywhere above the rub rail). I didn't have an opportunity to launch it airborne but I suspect the 21.5 degree dead rise would land me somewhat softly(?). It did great in a following sea with great sea keeping characteristics and gave a very secure feel at a drift and at the sloppy water going in and out of Jupiter inlet. If I compare the ride to my prior boats - Pursuit, Grady ,Seacraft ,McKee craft ,Luhrs, Mainship ,Hydra sports, Bluewater and many others (21), they lacked an all round satisfaction to our needs. Extremely happy with this vessel .
  4. Our second Cobia was delivered and it really looks sweet. Thanks to Captain Ron of Marine Connection WPB and Skip at the Maverick factory.
  5. Ethanol Related Email I Received

    Thought I would share this. This pic is a fuel line from my previous boat with a 4 stroke Suzuki with 100 hours on it .The previous owner used fuel from a gas station with ethanol and claims the additives would negate the effects of ethanol. What you see is the inner lumen of the fuel line dissected in half. The inner fuel line seemed to delaminate into a plastic type material restricting fuel flow. Believe it or not I could run the boat up to 5800rpm but it would drop RPMs intermittently . No ethanol for me!
  6. Props, The never ending question

    Sounds like your over propped .You should be turning about 5800 trimmed on a medium-full load load . My concern would be that you're putting a load on the motor that could lead to premature wear. The F300 has a range of 5000-6000rpm but higher is better. If you are turning a 19 pitch , try a 17 pitch .I would drop 2 inches on the wheel.
  7. Life expectancy of an outboard?

    Regular use and preventative maintenance is the best solution for longevity on an outboard. Water taxis and commercial motors are running fine with excess of 4000 hours of day to day use.
  8. Finally Delivered!

    Great looking ride! Your going to love it!
