  • 1984 Mako 238 repower

    Looking to repower a 238 WA that has had the transom enclosed and has a twin flotation bracket installed on it. I'd like to put two 175 Suzuki's on it (490#s). Does anyone have any recommendations or experience?

    See my intro post with pics here:

    I think it's going to be a little stern heavy with nearly 1000# that far off the rear. I don't think the added flotation will be enough to offset the weight. That boat would have originally only had a single motor in that weight range. Try finding a single 300 or 350 would be my choice, you'll be in a similar power range and 3-400 less weight. I don't have any experience with a cabin boat like yours though. Maybe the added weight up front will make it better but that's just my $0.02 worth.
