  • 1992 Mako 261B "Reel Impressive"

    A few months ago I purchased a 261B, but needing to sell the Grady White I figured I'd sandbag y'all before posing it. Grady sold this week, so I pulled it out of the field and decided to swap trailers over. I'll post a few pics up.

    Plan, pull bracket off, dig foam out and weld up opening and install drain plug. I am wanting to go twin FourStrokes, loved the F350s on the Grady, so that said I will be pricing a new bracket with Armstrong, A&J marine, and any others that may come highly suggested. I am wanting more floatation built in, along with the wider center mounts for the fourstroke engines.

    Pull Ttop, CC, and fuel tank to see if it's still good or needs replacement. Plan on doing a full restoration on hull just like Stroken.



    Floats high without engines

          Dave, they were the best running 93 engines I had ever seen, sit up for a week, choke and they would pop off for a few seconds then die off, hit the key and they were running fine after that. The downfall was the steering arm was rusted so thin they needed replacement. I sold them to a man and his son they were pulling the power heads and replacing the 150s (one they just blew) they had on a 23' Regulator.

              Actually yesterday I got to work, I have the console pretty stripped down, but don't have any more pictures. Though you've got to love winter time in South MS!

                Today i washed the boat that turned out to be a waist of time, but got a few extra hands and some equipment and i removed the T-Top, Console, and the leaning post. Popped the deck lid off and had the hardest tank removal out of the 4 I have done. But it's out and ready to be tested. Shockingly it looks really good but pressure test will tell. Still didn't much for pictures.

                  Worked on getting the bracket off. Wedges were the key!
