  • 1970 Mako19

    Hello all new to the forum have a project I want to start have my dads all original 1970 mako 19. My father bought new in 1970 and the boat has been kept indoors its whole life never bottom painted never left outside overnight. It is a solid boat.

    I see a lot members do a total restoration does anyone think this boat may be just cleaned up and run or is that a risky proposition.

    Any help would be great

    Thanks

    Typically anything that's a 1970, my gut says it's a full restore. However, one that's history is completely known like yours could be a different story.

    Are there any soft spots in the deck? How do the bilges look? They really should be bone dry if it's indoors like you say. You might start out by posting up some pictures of anything that looks concerning to you and get some feedback from people who know a lot about these boats.
