You'll enjoy the 228. Great size, good cockpit area, easy to trailer, better ride due to overall length and weight over the 208, easy solo launch and retrieve. It just does alot of the stuff I want to do very well.
New to the forum, but purchased a 226 Seafarer, 2006 last year. Kicker motor Yamaha 9.9 was a little quirky, but had the carburetor rebuilt and runs better. Have 250 Yamaha that runs great. Previous owner screwed bolts into the rod holders to secure Cannon downriggers, and need to replace them. Any advice on how to update these? Also, need to add new stripes along the side. Any ideas on where to get pin-stripe sticker kits that would match, or be very close? FishingGradyWhiteMike
Mike, I have just been using Google and searching for Grady Decals for my 208. The ones I have located are replicas but seem to look pretty close to original. Not sure if factory original is even possible, good luck.
