  • My 72__Mako 17 Angler

    This is my 72 Mako 17 Angler , Evinrude 135hp. Ive had the boat for about 6yrs. Ive been a Member on CM for about 6yrs.I Love this site have spent hours on end reading an reading.Older Makos are not common in the midwest or Makos in general. Any way it time to rebuild an I want to get pics on here planning to start as soon as it starts cooling off. [img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

          Iam in the process of pulling it apart. I have the center console off , tank out an foam out of the coffin. Its been very hot this summer 35 days in the 100's.

          id="left"> Havent been going at it very hard, couple more weeks it will start cooling off. So far stringers look good need to look into it a little more.
          Top of the List

          1. New power

          2. New Tank

          3. New wiring

          4. CC

          5. New plumbing

          6. Paint

          Bottom Line I will be working on her for a while. I enjoy working on it but not when I have to sweat like a hog.

                  I do have drain holes in all the boxes. They began to fill as I was launching the boat. Pulled it back on the trailer and installed plugs in all holes.
