  • Mako 232

    I found this one and kept under wraps, but after a long 15 hour day yesterday(since I get accused of not jumping) I decided it wasn't the boat for me.

    If anyone is seriously interested I have PB album with about 40 pics, have climbed all over, rode in the boat, and I can give you my assessment.

    I was surprised, even with fishboxes, I think the cockpit in the 224 is roomier than the 232; that wide transom takes up more space than I realized. I also think when a change does happen for me, the difference between torque of my 2-stroke and a 4-stroke will be a big adjustment. I have been told and I'm leaning toward total agreement, even though I love the look of the 232, I need to go bigger.

    I seriously think that if you make a change,it will need to be bigger.Anything else will feel like a lateral move at best.Keep searching.

            241s themselves are seeming like semi unicorns so good luck with a 241B

                    I cannot comment of the difference between a 225 and a 250 4-stroke, but I do know the hulls of that 232 and my 224 are similar and my 200 2-stroke low end torque, time to plane, and WOT are ALOT better.

                      Those older yamaha's seem to need to spin up to get good torque. That is different with newer motors so I wouldn't discount a newer four stroke of the same hp. What will take time to adjust is the fuel savings.

                          Hi Chuck,

                          I am interested in what you thought about the boat even though you decided it would not work for you. I tried to message you but since I have no posts it would not let me. (have lurked for a long time)

                          Thanks,

                          Jon
