      How do we get this thread posted as a "sticky" so we dont have to keep bumping it up. It would be nice to keep it visible so that as new members join CMOC they will be aware of what were trying to do. We need to keep this thread current so it doesnt fall off the radar.

            Hi, I've owned 3 Makos and belonged to the West Coast Club and Palm Beach Club that Bill Munro ran. The clubs always die. Most of the people involved are in their 50's or 60's and seem to just walk away from boating. I participated in many Fundaments in the 80's and met hundreds of Mako boat owners. From what I hear most are out of serious boating. Plus for whatever reason that made Mako the most popular center console for several decades, the Mako company walked away from that type of involvement. I do boat out of Jupiter and WPB and still see many old Makos on the water, but rarely see what I consider new boats. I've also been a member of two diving clubs in PB Co and both died. I wish you luck and might even attend a meeting or two, but it's tough to keep it going.

                I think Classic Mako has basically the home port so to speak of a Club.. I am in Ft Lauderdale though and there are also people from Tampa and clear water areas that meet up wat our place and do Bimini and West End Bahama trips and we have room for trailers.. Ted

                      Guesing from the latest response, and with a bit of reflection, that organizing informal "board get togethers" a couple times each year might be a better way to go, or to at least build momentum.

                        I'd like to get together on the briny with you guys. I splash the 'Cap either Sebastian or Fort Pierce. How far south is Boynton? More than a one hour tow might be too far.

                          think that Chuckitall makes a good point. We should start very informal and if the interest is there we can always expand. People don't want to be "roped in" to something that they feel obligated to belong/attend. Instead of having formal monthly meetings and pre arranged monthly social events etc.. we should focus on providing "local" support for members and have meetings posted on CMOC when needed. I think having a couple "Peanut island" meet ups, maybe a few private tournaments etc.. would be sufficient to get people involved. The support network is a great aspect as well as I learned first hand by having you great guys around when I was in need.

                            Drew, thats was my opinion from the begining, start with a few get togethers and let it evolve from there. I think what you are loosing sight of is the whole point of this post. While its great to "DREAM BIG" the purpose of this entire post was to gain interest and get feedback. I for one, am on board as well as a "few" others that have posted. In my opinion, there has not been enough feedback to formally start a "club". I also believe that the meeting places with our vessels should not be just conveinient for some. They need to change; Fort Pierce, Stuart, Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Hobe Sound, etc, etc. The biggest flaw I see with the Destin Fundament is that it is the same place every year and only conveinient for those on the west coast. In other words, there shouldn't even be a need to form a separate organization. The meets should move around Florida and give everyone a chance to attend. Just my opinion.

                              I'd like to meet up with some Mako's. I just joined but I've had a classic Mako 26' for 17 years! It wasn't so classic back then. When and where? I'll come up from Fort Lauderdale, heading to Peanut Island soon.

                                Welcome aboard! I am somewhat new to the site as well, maybe a few months now. You will love it. The guys one here are so knowledgeable and always looking to help each other out. Hopefully we can organize a Mako rendezvous in the near future here in the east. Again, welcome.
