  • Not too much to update, this is late news for those on FB, but ground down the deck to glass the console down to. I may or may not be trying to solicit out some glass work to help push this along.
    Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him had better take a closer look at the American Indian. -Henry Ford[br]1988 Mako 261 \"Stroken\" Project Thread: http://classicmako.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=26203[br]1992 Mako221B project thread: http://classicmako.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=48747[br]1992 Mako 261B \"Reel Impressive\" project thread: http://www.classicmako.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=56286[br]

    • I may have missed this question earlier because I didn't really take the time to look through it ALL, but I'm looking at upgrading my non bracketed 231 to a bracketed 261 and I'm curious about the ride and control. The one I'm looking at has a single 350 Zuke on it. My current 231 needs no tab unless it's to level out the load. How do you think a 261 with a big single on a bracket will do? Also how do you feel that big single will do with that heavy of a boat?

      Thanks, Warren.

        I don’t think it will do bad, but it won’t be a speed demand. My previous one has twin 225 OX66, and this one will have twin f300’s. As far as ride, the 261 is 1.5x the boat over the 221/231 I feel. Af far as the boat moving a heavy load, that as a lot do so with the right prop on there.
