    Agree [B)]

    The whole line was looking cheap and repulsive. I liked the layout of new 212 and 215 though. At New York show 215 was the only boat equipped with Suzi 250 4-bangers. 232 model had stress cracks. DEAR MANUFACTURER PLEASE SAVE YOUR REPUTATION!!!

    Yes I spent a good 1/2 hour on the everglades very very nice rig. Never saw a windshield like that before... it was really cool.

    Someone mentioned pulling out all the old molds from the '70's and '80's and using those to build a quility boat again. Hate to tell you, but ALL those old molds were cut up and sold as scrap over the past 4 or 5 years. Seems to me that the recent string of new owners didn't want any real competation -

    i was at the providence show in January and I to was shocked by the mako boats. I don't know the durability of those new makos but they do look like crap, cheap looking junk. I thought the rabalo and edgewater looked sharp.

    Hey Strick-

    Those Everglades boats are very nice. They're made by Bob Dougherty of Boston Whaler and Edgewater fame.

    Did you check out the engineering on their t-top? They have a windshield the slides down into the console, hella led lights, and a bunch of other goodies.

    Since they are made like a whaler (foam sandwich construction) they are very quiet boats.

    No Makos at my boat show this weekend. Hard to believe there's not a single dealer in the state of South Carolina. Here are some of the similar brands represented (ranked in my opinion of fit & finish):

    BW

    Sea Pro

    Key West

    Scout

    Sea Fox

    Angler

    Pro Sports (a joke)

    At least you guys have a crappy Mako to look at. Here in California all we have is Sh*% boats. At the recent boat show I was dissapointed to see mostly ski boats and bubble boats. It was the same old thing..... There was a Scout dealer and BW dealer and a GW dealer but that was about it. Almost forgot there was a boat called Everglades CC that was impressive but for the most part we lack good boats. Try to find a SeaCraft or Mako.... God I'd just love to actually see a Jupiter. I've carried their brochure for years and just like looking at the pictures [] Maybe some day I'll get over to the Miami Boat show.

    Cheap hardware, and if you run your hands under the edges of the hatches and cutouts you might loose a finger. Their designs are stail and leave alot to be desired. Worse yet the dealer at the show had hondas on the back of them.

    A couple of Makos at the Mobile, Alabama Boat Show. No good. I didnt like em at all. Knock on the sides of one of those new ones, youll see. I concur with Mako224

    No Makos at our show. We did have 2 Jupiter 31's at the show. Everyone that walked past them had to stop. My dad who knows nothing about high-end boats walked up to them and said that the Jupiter 31's were the finest boat he had ever seen. Those suckers are really amazing.
