  • Has anyone had their transom rebuilt on a mako 261

    I was just curious to see how much it costs in case I ever have to do it to mine? Also is it better to go back with wood and fiberglass or some of the no rot materials? I have a floating bracket on the back with twin Suzuki 225s. Yes 4 strokes. Thanks in advance and appreciate your time.

    Depending on the shops in your area, I would expect it to be at least a $5k job. That's why so many of us choose to do it ourselves. I did mine for less then $1k in materials.

      Id highly recommend arjay. Used it on my old 231 and will use it on my 261 in a couple weeks.

        1977Mako22,

        I just got an estimate, this past fall, for $2K to replace the transom on my 1970 Mako 19. Although it would be nice to go composite; the material costs more and the labor could too (depending on which material). The way I look at it is my wood transom lasted 48 years so if it lasts another 48, Ill be happy with that. Lastly I understand the plywood that Mako used back then wasnt treated. Good luck with your decision.

          Many projects around here detailed using Arjay, including mine. I would highly recommend it as you ensure that every void is filled and you are now 100% waterproof.
