  • Mako 21 Models

    I had a guy stop by the other day while I was putting some teak back on my boat who seemed to know a little more about Mako's that I do as far as history goes. He looked at the rear storage compartments and told me very quickly that I had a 21A and that the 21B was a year or so behind what I have. Rear storage area on the 21B access from the top rather than from the insides of the splashwell. Also said there was a difference of how far up they placed the console.

    All he said sounds reasonable. Also, it doesn't have the higher console that I have noticed on some pictures on this site.

    What other ways can I confirm this? Is there a manual available for my model?

          Thats the first I have seen of that older post, great job, and yes it belongs in an archive of some sort. Being a 21 owner myself I found it very informative,, dave.

              Thanks for doing all that research, Ringleader. The "big picture" as seen on a time line is really interesting, but that's all invisible unless someone exercises the patience and perserverance to put it all together. Thanks again!

                Thanks Millions, Ringleader! Great post and settle the issue right to the point. You are so gracious to dig it up. The Deep Vee 21 is definitely my boat.

                I noticed the small drawing actually shows the swivel seats, which mine had when I bought it. It now has a Mahogany leaning post in their place now. (Still have the chairs and the cushion in storage)

                I actually removed the added T-top what I understand was installed when the boat was new and took it back close to the original. That lasted about 2 hot day fishing trips and I sprung for the new t-top.

                The Gold floor has been painted (Too Hot) as well as the transom has been replaced and trim tabs added. Now powered with a Johnson 225, and it is an absolutely great ride.

                Thanks again for the archive link.
