  • 1979 23ft mako questions

    hey guys the owners manual for a mako 235 states the fuel tank is 122 gals would that be the same as my 1979 23 ft mako even though I have two tanks?? I think after 1979 the 23ft model turned into the 235 next question is I have owned 7 makos in the past, my last one and my favorite one hands down was my 21 with a yamaha 250 on it.now I own a 23 with a yamaha 250 do you guys think my 23 will be as good all around as mr. 21?? I sure hope so the hulls are pretty much the same right? what can I expect from the 23 anyone who has owned the 23 in the past or present can help me thank you all in advance

    Most guys that have them love them...I had a 21 and often thought that the hull would ride better with a few more feet at the water line...

      hello chris , and thank you for your reply, it was music to my ears that was what i was hoping to hear my old 21 set the bar very high so im glad to hear the 23 is up to the challenge. I treat my boat to anything and everything it wants but i expect some return for my efforts so thanks again
