    Brand new Hull with bubbles, paint problem ???

    ...is really bad. Dropped off to Yamaha Dealer in October of 2022. Called Yamaha USA weekly for updates. Received the same story as everyone else: #1) Yamaha is asking questionnaire to all with this issue to figure our root cause. #2) Yamaha is sending rep out to marina to look at boat #3)...

    08 AR230 Pissers not working

    ...tube that runs from the motor to the jet pump had become disconnected from what I believe is the jet pump and had squirted grease out (see photo #1). I reconnected the hose to the jet pump. The hose did not have a clamp on it and seemed to come off too easy. Do I need to find a clamp for...

    Screwed up and found the sand bar.

    ...we were. Boating waters around here can get stupidly shallow very fast but, hey, there are boat slips there so it must be ok, right? (Mistake #1) The stupid stock depth gauge is stuck on 2.3' depth. It1s done that before. Shutting the power off and resetting it always gets it to wake up. I'll...

    2011 AR210 Check Engine Lights??

    ...Waited a few minutes and turned the boat back on, no lights. Dropped some people off on their dock, shut the boat off (switched to battery #1) and then went to the boat launch to pull the boat out of the water, no lights. The only thing I could think of is low voltage??? Could low batteries...

    Just bought our first boat - the 2020 AR 210! Any Advice/Lessons Learned?

    ...you need/want. Remember it's supposed to be fun....dont let the stress on initial trips get to you. Relax and enjoy (another reason for bullet #1). Dont take pets on the first outing.

The flush path out of the cylinder block water jackets is up through the head gasket into the cylinder head and out through the cooling water pipe...

    ...used your insurance? If so, they might have raised your rates. Weather-do you live in a hurricane zone? If so, you will pay more. (similar to #1) I'm sure some of the insurance sales guys on here can add a few more, but suffice to say, a simple comparison between a Wisconsin older guy...

    Hello! from Treasure Coast Florida

    ...Your pics show the problem of Yamaha10s flush system: the amount of water it allows in is inadequate and it doesn11t distribute it well (to cylinder 1). I12d argue the issue of build-up (and subsequent overheat) is not caused specifically by 13salt,14 but rather 15salt water16 which contains an...

    07 to 09 230 Series Shift Cable Replacement

    ...outside, there is a rubber grommet (labeled #2) shown in the image below I stole from @bronze_10 that goes into the through-hull fitting (labeled #1) seals the hull a bit and keeps the cable centered. On mine those both fell out in the grass when the cables were pulled through and I did not...

    What would you do to this Hull?

    ...side). The prior owner had the boat on a lift - so I am thinking its been there for a while. Clearly demonstrating that just as we all know . . . #1) the Yamaha boats are great for beaching. #2) Keel Guard would have been helpful (other please use this picture as evidence you need to buy some...
