  • mako 260

    I am about to purchase a Mako 260 1990 notched transom, thinking of repowering, has anyone have any first hand experience with the new four strokes, suzuki, yamaha etc.Are 250s too much weight for these boats?

    Congrats on the 260. I have one and love it. I can't comment on a repower since I'm still running the original 2 smokes. Would love to hear others experiences.

      I put a pair of 200 Suzuki Four strokes on mine. I was concerned about the weight, but it sits pretty nice. I get some water in the transom, but I fish in some nasty weather so any cut out will let some water in.

      I cruise around 23-25 MPH at 2GPM. Top end seems to be around 38. Those numbers are dependant on load. I havent put enough hours on it to give better info.
      Thanks!!!
