    Mine is very strong as it is framed with aluminum and bolted to the sides. The Starboard is just the framing around it. The wife and her friends usually ride back there when just cruising around the water ways.

    Yeah, I read some postings about using them. Thanks for the info.

    I like the transom fill in rather than doing an entire transom rebuild. Makes a lot of sense. Is it sturdy enough to walk or sit on?

    Mine is a custom. But for another boat that we modified to work. A&J marine have a good bracket many are happy with. The bracket and Suzuki have changed the COG but that small con is outweighed by the Pros

    Looks great! Nice addition with the bolsters too.. what swim platform did you go with? I've read a lot about the makos being too heavy and needing more bouyancy than what the platforms can provide. Most people say to get a custom one built, but I'm thinking someone has to make a standard option for these older heavy builds..

    I just bought my first Mako. 1974 22'. I feel the same way about the livewells. Cutting them out has definitely crossed my mind. My alternate solution is to build rails on the stern so I can stand on top of the livewell and land my fish safely without fear of falling in! Which may have happened before... Ask me if I landed the fish. I landed the fish!

    Cutting out stern fish boxes

    Anything to share on cutting out stern fish boxes? They take up too much deck space, especially on my little 211. Anything hiding underneath or behind these that would make the job difficult?
Working...
