  • need advice

    I am looking at a used 191 and a new 192. any thoughts? the 191 is a 98 and appears to be in great shape. My wife grew up with a 19 foot Mako and the size is just perfect for our needs but the recent bad press has me concerned. I would look for an older one but most are in tough shape. what HP is best for either of those boats? the dealer is pushing a suzuki 140hp 4stroke for the new 192. I called Mako to get their input and all they would/could say was that the 191 is a totally different boat from the new 192's. any info/advice is appreciated.

    I have a '97 191. No problems so far. I am the second owner. Transom and floor are solid.

    Hope this helps. If you need more specific information feel free to ask.

      thanks for the quick reply: what motor and hp are you running with? is it enough? would 130hp 4stroke be able to get up on plane quickly with four people on-board?
