  • 1979 Mako 21 Worth it?

    Hello Looking to buy this pre-own mako as a first boat/project to fix it up owner says it has soft spot really small like 1x2 or so. He is selling it for 4,000 as it sits right know. Has a mercury 2000 optimax. I will have around 5,000 to fix it up. Is it worth it? Sorry computer not letting me post pictures

    I have a 79 21. It's a great boat and would check the usual spots,transom, gas tank, soft spots in the floor,etc. The 5k price tag doesn't seem out of line if the engine runs. I'd check the compression on it. Does i come with a trailer?

      Hello yes comes with trailer. Im just scared about the stringers being bad or the transom since it sleeps outside uncover. Engine has around 800 hours on it wouldnt be surprised if it needed a rebuilt. However looking at a turn key ready 1979 21 with a 2007 yamaha 250 with 770 hours T top Sound system trim tabs, gps, hydraulic steering etc... Turn key ready. with a price tag of 9000 obo

        The second one sounds good, but it may have problems as well. Sounds like you need a Marine Surveyor or some one in your area that can check each one out. Gas tanks and transoms are the big areas to check for problems. Reach out here and see if someone in your area might give you a hand with these?
