  • 1982 Mako 224

    Greetings

    I recently purchased a 1982 Mako 224. Hull seems really solid and rides very well. The previous owner disclosed that the fuel tank was close to needing replacing, which I am currently having done. When the tank was taken out, the guy doing the job told me that the wooden beams under the floor needed replacing. They do look bad, but the floor feels solid. I will replace them. My question is: should I worry about the integrity of the hull or floor further to the bow? Everything on that boat seems and feels solid. Do these hulls usually suffer from soft floors other than in the area around the fuel tank? I appreciate any help you can give me.

    I just recently purchased a 81 224 this year love the boat and shes solid boat. The fuel tank was replaced but unfortunately the deck up in the bow area by the coffin storage box has a couple soft spots I plan on restoring the entire deck this winter. Your stringers, are the soft or show signs of rot? If you dont absolutely have to replace them I would leave them be

      Please note your floor sits on foam and above the stringer. You can always use a whole saw on the soft spot and fill with 4 lb closed cell foam replace the cut out and re-glass the seem. Re non-skid the are and be solid again. There is little to no wood in the front deck.

        Lee told officials that she encountered police barricades while driving to visit the child's great-grandmother on Sunday night, but said they were pushed slightly to the side of the road, leading her to believe it was safe to drive past them.
