  • Yet Another 250 - New Power

    Well my son pulled the trigger and purchased another Mako! He found this on a local South Jersey site and the story begins. He had to buy motors for the beast and found a good deal on a pair of Yamahas HPDIs 150hp. He posted on CM about props and they arrive last week. Boats needs a little TLC and definite help with existing wiring under the helm. Hoping to have her in the water for some trial runs before old man winter sets in up here. Had some issues with motors being stored over a year without treated gas. Steering parts were sold with previous motors so we had to purchase new mounting kits and tie rod. Triplecrowns rebuild has been very helpful and I had to laugh when I read about getting stuck upside down in the stern battery box. Me too! Will be posting pictures as we progress.

          I'd love to see if you can swing it, make better front stands, those are greatly scaring me..... I like seeing nothing but wood under the keel and not cinderblocks.... However do yourself a great favor and get stands up front that are correct for your safety.

            No that's how we saw her for the first time . We had to jack it up and put it on the trailer to get her home. Little scary slidding the trailer under while jacking it up. Back supports kept wanting to kick back. The help of a good friend who has done alot of rigging made it possible. She's sitting on the trailer in the yard beside the 17, it's little brother. Neighbor allowing us to store the 17 in his yard for now. He also has a 17 put away for the winter already. Man she looks big out of the water. Need a 8ft ladder to get aboard. Motors are totally rigged and connected. Had to take apart the VST tank and remove the fuel pump on starboard motor because it was gummed up from untreated gas. Have all new filters to install. Both motors have under 180hrs run time, not bad for 2000 models.

                No the top is fiberglass and the guy had a removable tuna tower which my son has sold. He has additional interior pictures which I'll post later.

                  Here are some pics of the interior. Previous owner removed the closet. What is the best way to clean the fur? Surveyor said that the slide windows leaked at some point so we will need to replace them at some point. I am 6'3" and can stretch out fully in the cabin. Plan on spending some weekends down at the Jersey shore on the boat. Future projects include power shore and a tv[]











                  We also have to undo this rat's nest

                    Nice rig!

                    For the cabin liner I use this with good results. Worked on the Mako and the Hydra. Removes the water marks and mildew stains. I have not used it for laundry though.

                      Well we spent the weekend working on the boat rather than striper fishing because my son hurt is back. Had some issues with starboard engine tell tale but resolved it by flushing out using the connection on motor. Motors sat for a year not preped probably so alot of salt deposits were blocking the passage. Now both engines are running fine so we are getting closer to our first sea trial. Got the oil tanks mounted in stern boxes so one more thing taiking off the to do list. I've been working on the rat's nets of wiring under helm and hope to have things tagged and secured until rewiring this winter. We post more pictures as work progresses.

                        Hey Keyman, I must have been out of town when you first posted this, I missed it. Another 250! The 250s are becoming a prominent hull on CM.

                        Ive spent more time upside down in those things then I would like to admit and have just about been stuck twice, wondering how I was going to get out.

                        She looks big because she is big.
                        I dont see anything that really catches my eye other than the obvious with the wiring. Speaking of shore power, I am doing that myself right now. I see a battery on the floor over the sump, you can see how I made a shelf across that thing and it holds 2 batts.

                        Make sure of course everything in the bilge is ok.

                        The door you see on the panel is from the old closet. Keep the pics coming, I am very excited for you!

                          We hope to do a sea trial this weekend if the weather holds. We are not fishing in the ocean just dropping her in on the Delaware river to see how she runs. Still have some wiring issues which need to be addressed but mechanically we are fine. Will post some pictures when we return.

                              So we got her out on the water today for her first test run. Here is some footage from my iphone.

                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UU...yer_detailpage

                              We had one hiccup in the starboard motor. When the engine would hit 4400 rpm, it would start to cut out and sputter some. If you pulled back the rpms, it would run normal again. Any ideas what might be wrong? The sputter happens at 40 seconds and 53 seconds

                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UU...yer_detailpage

                              The performance numbers were 35 mph on the gps at 4000 rpms. Could get past 4400 to see what our top end is. This was running 15 1/4 x 19 pitch 3 blade ss props. Boat gets up on plane really nice as well
