    Hey airreno welcome to CM. Not many people are going to see your question here. If you start a new thread under the discussion tab many more people will see it and one of the other 17 owners will certainly chime in to help you.

    I have a 1992 Mako 221. (I was south of the Falls Mall in south dade for andrew so I know about the roof blowing off.)

    I have owned my Mako for 18 years. I am the second owner.

    The Mako has crossed the stream. We took our honeymoon from Miami to Key West on the Mako. All four of our kids have grown up on her, fishing, swimming, diving, exploring. She has explored the water of boca chica and upper captiva. We fish her hard.

    Many times I have wanted to “move up.” Every time I didn’t I am grateful.

    That boat is part of my soul. And my family.

    Mako for life. Mission accomplished.

Would sure be grateful for any help running down the HIN. thanks
    Start a new thread guy. This isn't the place for that question and nobody's going to see it.

    FWIW, In my 171, I have HIN in my anchor locker. It's up high on the port side. Not easy to see. And one on the transom. Check again up inside the bow compartment(s). It may not be as simple as peeking inside with a flashlight. I had to get inside my bow compartment in my 171. Allll the way inside.

    What sold me on Mako was a 224 that Mako Donated to the old FCA?( I think,my memory is old like me. ) A good friend Marty Friedman bought it and I became a member of his Crew. Fished most of the tournaments from the Masters in Palm Beach to Boog Powells on Stock island in the Keys. Those were fun events that really showcased Makos and made The Mako Family. It's good to see the old classics rising from the "dust" and becoming so desirable to own. I'd put my 79 21 up against any of the new 21's for quality and performance.

    Triple Bogey:

    I am brand new to Classic Mako. I joined today after spending the last two evenings reading the first 8 pages of this thread and jumping to page 43 to see if you were still providing valuable information to Mako owners. I hope you can answer my question: I purchased a 1976 23 Mako center console in July 2018 and started a full restoration. The North Carolina title lists the HIN# as "MAK104430276", the hull number is not legible on the boat so I can't verify. Also, the boat has a 20" transom and the 1976 had a 25". Could this be a left over boat from 1975 that was given a production year of 1976 or did whoever got the HIN number just not read it correctly when they got the title work done? Thanks for all the info you have provided.

    Here is the original link to the boat the first time it was found at a boat yard in south Jersey...

    http://www.classicmako.com/forum/top...Terms=First,40

    I noticed a member was selling what he said was a first 40 so I inquired about it early last month and it turned out to be the same boat that was in that link from 2013. He had purchased it from someone who apparently had purchased it from that boat yard. Lots of plans for this boat apparently never went though. I plan to change that. Ill post some pics of it and how it sits today after I get home.


    Dallas...I remember this boat from a few years back.

    Here is an image of the name plate when I saw the boat some years ago.

    If you look closely...you can see M19 263 under the paint. The plate was mounted on the inside of the transom...starboard side.

    This may help connect the dots on the history of this ole 19

    First off thank you Eric for taking the time to take all those pics and posting them to the site... amazingly after all these years, most all of the teak seems to be there so I have an idea of what to replace if need be. Im working with Eddie on getting a couple of replacement emblem/placards to replicate the original ones that came off of this as it is slightly different than the current design. Id give anything to have a copy of the layout and original design as it came from the factory so that I can bring it back as close as it was the first day someone brought it home. I realize the M19 stands for Mako 19 , just curious as to what the 263 part means. Just a small part of nostalgia that is going to eat away at me until I figure it out. The original placard seems to be made of a stamped plastic or something, def not metal as it is extremely brittle. I intend on keeping the original and having a duplicate fabricated somewhere.
