  • Hi guys i need help

    Hi guys, i came from Italy i have a mako 211 with 150 hp yamaha year 1990, and i purchase the 20th september 2004 a 1991 mako 231 whit 2 mariner 175 hp each (year 2001) REALLY HUGE!!!!!! (they drink 18.50 gallons of gasoline each for hour sob![:u][:u][:u]) .

    The max speed that I take is 52 knots see with my Garmin GPSmap 60CS

    This boat is confiscate by the italian coast guard in summer 2000 to a smuggler of cigarettes, so it very fast for run away.[]

    It’s need a deep make-up the color it’s grey and bordeaux [] so I want to make the hull bleu and white really nice[]; I see the photos in yous site!

    But I need some pieces like: control light panel, and other pieces. Do you know a internet shop that have original mako marine spareparts?

    Thanks a lot

    your site is fantastic[][][]

    sorry for my english

      Is the hull painted now, or is is gelcoat? My guess would be paint. The easiest thing to do would be to paint over the existing colors.

      Give a better description, is the bottom painted with anti-fouling paint?

      As for the other question, original Mako hardware is difficult to find. Mako sold most of thier stock to a place called Marine Connection Liquidators. You may want to contact them and ask if they have the specific parts you are looking for.


      Sorry, I had to type in English, my Italian is rusty. Good luck!

                    I would hate to pay the fuel cost for that baby. Fuel prices in Europe are outragous!

                      [][][][] About 1.5 USD for 0,26 gallons but it’s too satisfying to be the fastest boat in all the docks[][][][]

                      the color of engines are silver whit a blue and withe hull[88]

                      you can see my baby next week on the our site before the works![8D]
