  • How did I do on a 73 22' Mako?

    I have wanted a Mako for years....I have been looking at 17's and 19's thinking that would be the most affordable. I stumbled across a 73 Mako 22' CC powered by a 1988 200 Yamaha V6 with trailer this morning. T-Tower, VHF, Depth Finder, GPS, CD player. Just serviced.Runs great. Hull is in great shape. I paid $5500. How did I do?[]

    Pics are here.

    Shaun - looks to be in great shape! The 22 is a good boat and I spent many weekends fishing in one as a kid. They don't have a very deep V for a 22 so they tend to pound in rough seas but it is one great boat. Enjoy!

      bassgodshaun - I would say that you got more that a deal especially with the trailler, as one in good working order will cost you at least a grand. Couldn't tell from the pics to much about the details so you will need to be the judge there. I have had the same '73 22 cc for 25 years now and it is a great boat for what I have needed here in New England. Have fished 60 miles off shore for tuna and marlin and in many a bad weather sea -some of over 30 feet and never once felt threatened by the water - remember you have full flotation. Real safe boat although they do tend to be a little wet in a quatering wind & sea and will pound a little in more than about 3 feet of the funny chop that we have here in Long Island Sound off CT. It will float in a foot of water which is great for fishing skinny water for Stripped Bass and the flat bottom design makes it a real stable boat when at speed on plane. And that flat bottom will make it go like hell with that 200 on the back. Over the years I have completely rebuilt my boat with a new Yahama 225 motor w/ hyd stearing, all the wiring on the boat, put in dual batteries, new gas tank etc, replaced all the teak with Starboard, and the rest of the normal stuff that is done year to year. If you have questions let me know and I will try to help you out. Hope this helps

        Thanks for the input! I'm still blown away by my purchase. I really didn't expect to get so much boat for the money. I will keep you posted on how it is performing. I'm glad I found this forum!

              That's a great price! You could bring that boat to Maryland and easily get more than twice what you paid for it. Next boat I buy will be in Florida. --Dave/Annapolis
