          I've never seen it before. I guess I don't have the only Mako Pilothouse.[:x)]

          The demensions are off a little. The length to height. I'm wondering if he cut that off of another boat? Got the direct link?

            Yeah , that's what I thought. Looks like it was added from another boat. Scale is off - I agree. Not in your league!

                  Cut off from another boat and ugly. Worse of both worlds. 80K speeds???? Yea right.

                    Remeber, this is Australia, think metric system. Not many other places use the same messed up system we do. 80k per hour is not 80 knots, its 80 kilometers per hour, which according to my handy dandy convert program is 49.7097 mph or 43.19654 knots. I think that may be possible, unlikely, but possible.

                      This is the message the guy sent back to me.

                      Hello Bobby,

                      I have not had the boat for long and I am not sure when the Pilothouse was done

                      but I can tell you this Mako boat is very nice as I am sure you know.

                      I can tell you I have come across your website after I have bought this boat

                      when I was looking for information about the boat.

                      Here are more detailed photos and I will send you some more close ups if you

                      need to put them onto the website as you never know I might end up keeping it:

                      Valer
