  • New guy Ray K. Reese

    Sorry I missed your first post's Ray. Glad to see another local Mako owner. Jimmy O'Leary aka Hammertime lives in Gulf Breeze.

    Welcome Aboard. Let me know if you need something. I'm always here and around the house.

    Thank you for the welcome. I will be taking you up on your offer of help! This site has already provided me with alot of information. This is my first boat. Primarily, I am a car guy. Working on the boat is somewhat different, though some things transfer. I'm trying to learn as much as I can so that I can get the Mako in the water soon. Thanks again!

    Kind Regards,

    Ray

        thats funny, I was a car guy too, I like the freedom working on a boat gives you. you can make changes and improvements without some guy at a car show saying "thats not stock, why did you do that"

        The swim platform on my 21 mako is off of a 19 century. Try putting a bumber from a Dodge on your Chevelle project and see what kind of reaming you get hehe. Heck you guys thought it was cool. I like it here[] dave

          Dave,

          If the GS is any indication of your "car-guy" skills, I'd say you had that "car-stuff" pretty well "in-hand"... That GS is what I'd call a WAY-NICE[8D] "Motion Mochine"[]...

          PS... WELCOME Ray !![(#)]

                  WOW !! I FINALLY know what all us "OLD" car guys are doing these days !!! We've graduated to boats and left the "street scene" to the bubble gum chewing "Front Wheel Drive - bumble-bee motor" & "Thump-A-Bump" stereo crowd...

                    Sounds like there are some great cars in this group as well! Mine is a 65 Sunbeam Tiger. Like some of your boats, the Tiger isn't stock either. Thank you all for the welcome. I think I'm going to enjoy boating and participating on this site. Sure glad I found you guys!

                    Regards,

                        Oh' Yea I almost forgot. A very close buddy and I raced a dirt circle track car for about 6yrs too. Ford Torino in Hobby stock for several yaers and then we built a Super Street from a Torino Frame shortened and hung a Mavrick body on it. We alway's ran 351 Cleveland's.

                        Nothing sweeter than the sound of a Clevland w/180deg header's turning 7500.[]
