  • powering a 1987 Mako 248 walk-around cuddy

    Just picked up a 248 with no motor. It has a Gil bracket for a single. Would a 225 hp Yamaha 4.2l motor be adequate for this boat, which is rated for 280 hp max?

    All comments welcome.

    I do not know of many, if any, 248 owners on the site. I have never been on, but that is a big boat and heavy with cabin, I personally think that would be way underpowered.

    I have a new to me 241, a CC, and I'm debating repower and options. I will not consider less than 300 if I decide to go single.

      CB--since your 241 is rated to accept up to 400 hp a 300 would not be too much motor. But I'm afraid of legal repercussions if I were to go over the 280 maximum recommended for my 248, which is likely vastly underrated.

      Love the color on yours--beautiful boat. It's actually what I had in mind for mine.
