Hey Joe, did you get your performance worked out with your new 250 Merc? I also am looking to repower from a 2006 F150 four stroke to a Suzuki 200I4 or maximizing the horsepower to a V6-250 for my 2006 208 adventure. I would like to start a thread for all 208 owners regarding their horsepower and performance experience from 200 Hp(four stroke) up.
NICE BOAT, LOTS OF TEAK TO CLEAN, SUPRISINGLY ITS NOT A REAL DEEP V HULL HOWEVER THAT 9'6" BEAM IS A REAL BLESSING. I'M IN VERO, HOW MUCH THEY ASKING. THE ENGINES MUST BE REALLY TIRED AS YOU MENTIONED NOTHING ABOUT THEM. UNLESS THEY ARE BLOWN, A COMPRESSION CHECK, VISUAL INSPECTION OF CYLINDERS AND CHECK OUT OF LOWER UNITS IS MANDATORY. MORE THINGS GO WRONG FROM LACK OF USE THAN EXCESSIVE USE.
Give a text or call any day and we can talk. I own a self storage place in Court House behind Patties Party World. I'm usually around. I keek my boat at storage next to my home. Boat is currently in a slip at Schooner while I work on my trailer.
If your generator is still available, I could use it. from Long Island and would be able to shoot up there for pick-up. I am having some issues and a few parts would help me out. Let me know, thanks...
Smokey: I'm so sorry that Florida gave your whole family Covid. We are, by far, the most irresponsible state in the Union relative to Covid. Glad to hear that you're recovering. The rest of the family recovering as well?
The boat is getting closer to what I envisioned when I purchased it. Removed the decals and all the thru hull fittings and sanded and painted the above water part of the boat. Ended up plugging the thru hull fittings that went to the live wells. Rewiring is almost done. Very excited about finishing this.
I also have a GW 205 and am currently in the market for a trailer. I see the thread below from 2020. Just curious, what trailer did you end up buying and how do you like it? Any accessories or up grades you with you had purchased?
