  • 1986 mako 254 rehab

    I purchased the boat from a guy who had a similar idea as me, he had already trashed the cap and pulled all the foam. My plan is to replace all stringers and floor, put a flat deck that follows the lines of the boat, possibly cut a little more shape into the back and install a bracket with twin 300 verados on it [img]

      I too just bought a 1986 Mako 254. I would love to share ideas and photos to compare. The PO took pretty good care of this one, but there are some things I am not sure of.

          Welcome to CM. Check out badfish's 251 as he did what you are describing. Not sure about twin 300's. A single 300 will get you to 50 mph on a good day.

              I've been on a 261 with twin 250 hp e-tecs and it does not need that much power. A 254 would be fine with twin 175s or a single 300-350.
