      This is from the FAQs. I just bought a set of black ones and I think they are for a 231. ML charged me $45 for the set. I'm not sure if I'm going to use them and might be willing to let them go for less than what they are charging. Only hitch is that I'm in the process of moving and they are packed away somewhere.....

      QUESTION: Where can I get new Mako emblems (placards) for my particular Mako hull?

      OUR BEST ANSWER: The only place I know of is Marine Connection Liquidators in Ft. Pierce, FL. Phone: (772) 465-6460 or E-mail [email protected] . They have a large selection of many of the models made throughout the years, but they are sold out of some models (Mako 21 & Mako 211 for certain). They may not have the placard in the desired color you are looking for, so you may have to settle on some other color.

      Other alternatives include getting the Mako insignia cut in vinyl or contacting a Mako dealer and ordering the new Mako decals which are a heavy rubber material which adheres to the hull by an adhesive.

        Also... If they don't have the color that you want. Buy one in whatever color they have and find a business with a CNC router and have them made in the color material that you want... Probably very expensive, but an idea nonetheless.

          ChadLmar-

          Call Marine Connection Liquidators in FT Pierce, Florida. I bought a set of Mako 231 emblems there last April. They did not have may left nor did they have any in black. However, you (or a sign painter) can easily paint them black with lettering paint.

          I think I paid $15-20 each.

          Good luck.

            be warned...I had a quote from a company with a CNC routing machine of $48 per side for just the Mako emblem - no numbers. This was for a near perfect match on the material which was the older brown colored emblem.
