Took mine out for the second time yesterday. I launched from Ballard Park in Melbourne FL, drove south to Sebastian Inlet, then out to the wide Atlantic. The boat did great and everyone had a blast. Trolled and bottom fished but only had one keeper in the end. A Minn Kota would have been ideal for parking over reefs instead of guesstimating anchoring positions to drift back over the fishing spots.
Those are some great photo’s right there! Well done!

That is a great looking boat.

Anybody happen to install trailer guide post yet on these 6” beam trailers? Looking for longer u bolts
Yes. I purchased black 60" kit from West Marine, then grabbed some i beam brackets from local marine supply.

I also just ordered some soft covers for them.

I was going to install one of those, but honestly the alternator on the boat is so good that I have not had to charge the batteries for the past three trips, even running my sound system with amplifiers for five six hours at a time during Island trips.

That being said I'll probably eventually do it because it's a little bit of a pain to get into the battery compartment to stick a battery charger on it.

I don’t have a 252, just a 210, mine is mounted on the center console above the vertical rod holders, totally out of the way and easy to get to.

NMEA 2000 network installed.
I attached a screenshot of what audio looks like on the Simrad.
It's pretty nice!
It gives full access to the EQ and zone controls, subwoofer etc.

I also connected it to our Connext screen, but it's not showing up as a device on the Simrad so Yamaha may have it disabled.

I installed in the same location on my 255. I agree with Zak, it’s not needed for the house batteries but I installed it for my charger for my trolling motor batteries which are housed in the changing room.

Can anyone provide pictures and\or exact model number of the "thru-hull" transducer on the 252 or 255? Is it a true "thru-hull" or a "shoot thru hull"?

8’ antenna, the upper compartment roof is super thin. No way you could put an antenna up there without damaging the roof from the stress forces. I had to reinforce it with a piece of marine ply painted with epoxy, that’s the 4 bolts you see with fender washers. That thing ain’t going anywhere
This is pretty surprising. Yamaha claimed the top to be "outrigger ready". Can anyone else comment? Radar and a big VHF antenna are a must for me...

My 252 came with a thru-hull Arimar B148-20. It's mounted in the engine bay, just starboard of center.

Has anyone felt the need to add a backup/secondary bilge pump? That’s something else I’ve been considering…

This may have already been discussed on here, but I was disappointed that the boat did NOT actually come with the built in sound system control pad pictured on the website below the Simrad screen. I believe it was also in the videos on the spec model. Does anyone know where I could get one of these for install? Trying to control things on the touch screen is next to impossible while moving. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if you can hook a second one to the screen, since the rear of the boat has the control panel.

But I'm about to remove mine from the rear to install a Kicker for my new head unit, so I'll sell you this one if you want?

Based on your posts, you know a heck of a lot more about this than I do. If you can confirm that a second one can be hooked to the screen, I'd be interested in buying it. I just know it's harder than heck to control it from the screen while cruising.

I have antenna installed with no problem. Another guy that I nobody to 55 and has an antenna and a radar installed and hasn’t had any issues.

Does the kicker and the factory control require the same size hole to be mounted? I see the kicker is round and the factory is more oval.

Crazy busy with work right now.
