    Thats a great report, I am not sure I believe there speed and fuel burn numbers. /There getting better performance and fuel numbers out of a 175 than I am getting out of my 225. must be a magic prop.never the less thats the most information I have seen on the 21

    Thanks Ed for the great contribution. dave.

      Something to remember is the '78 21 was 21'......the later models changed, my '88 21B is 21'7", yet the Mako site has it at the same weight. I doubt those numbers.

      Regaurdless an excellent article and I appreciate it. I can tell anyone that the Mako 21, for it's size, is one of the dryest, smoothest riders out there.

              Thanks very much for the post. I have a '78 21 - all original. I have the 1978 sale brochure for the entire line. Really need to scan and upload this one of these days.

                  Fifty to sixty miles from sight of land in a 21 foot boat? Maybe if you got just out of sight of land and ran the 50 to 60 miles parallel to the coast line, but other than that I'm gonna want a bigger boat with at least two engines instead of a single 175 Rude.

                    Hey Chasmo, whats the difference - can you swim home when out of sight of land? My thoughts have always been comfortable with boat, motor, & radio. Staying within fuel range (use 1/3 rule)and have proper safety equip. go as far as I can. The difference between 10 and 60... well I can't swim either and the are dangers at all ranges. I have been 60 miles in 21 foot boat and felt safe, and it was a HydroSport would definately feel safe in a Mako.

                      I am the same way, I figure I can't swim back from 10 miles out anyway so whats the difference!

                          I thought it was pretty cool that the skier and spotter got props in the article. I guess it makes a difference to someone who that skier and spotter were.[]

                            We regularly run 50-60 miles out of St A Fl. We always use the buddy system and are extremely picky with our days, everyone has tow insurance. It is all about your comfort level and confidence in your equipment. I feel perfectly safe doing this.........On the other hand I have run past the jetties on a perfect day, turned around and came home......just because something inside didn't feel right.
