    I have a 1976 23+' Mako that I enclosed the transom and installed a aluminum engine bracket!

    If I install those Ping-Pong self bailing scupper, then my deck will not drain if I use wash down pump.

    Problem is my deck scuppers/deck drains are now under water and the deck is really very wet!

    My thought are some kind of extension fiber glassed on to the back of the transom under the swim platform/engine bracket.

    any suggestions???

      Will you be raising the floor?

        The boat is done and the deck is in its final place.

        "Flotation Bracket"....My thought was to glass two extensions on to the hull under the engine bracket to add lift.

          OK, your sig pic threw me off. If the boat is back together, you don't have many options. If you didn't offset your changes to the center of gravity of the hull, then you can only add depth to your bracket to add flotation. You could add weight to the bow to get the stern waterline up. Possibley fill in your drain holes in the transom and have them go out the side like mine? Just brainstorming..

          Brackets on smaller Makos always seem to be a challenge

            I enclosed the transom on my 1972 22'. Added a custom built single flotation bracket. My deck sits about 4" above the waterline. I went straight through the transom with inch and quarter thru hulls. Things that made mine float so well is going all composite with the transom (weight savings)and floor and moving batteries and oil tank under the console.

            OP not sure what you could do now. I don't like the way the floor drains were on the old makos. If your batteries are in the bilge you should move them. Possibly put some lead in the anchor locker but that doesn't really solve the problem overall, just a band aid.

              Mr Delgado,

              Do you have photos of side cut outs that you can pass on to me?
