    If by trouble you mean structural, I beleive the only real structural issues were with the 282.

      I do have a 1999 Mako 252 (It saw water in 2000 for the first time) purchased pre-owned at the end of 2004.

      Till now it seems a very good and solid boat.

      I have little cavitation problems but I am almost sure my engines are mounted a little bit too high.

      I will take out the boat from the water in June to have them moved down to fix definitely this problem.
