  • New guy 1972 Mako 17

    Hi all, proud new owner of a 17 CC. Brought it home last Monday, started checking it out, found someone had spent a lot of time taking care of this old gal. For a forty year old boat she is in excellent condition. Have read some horror stories about fuel tanks so the console had to come off for a look at the tank. The tank has been replaced by someone who apparently knew what they were doing, clean installations nice job. The motor is a 115 Mercury that appears to be in pretty good shape also, tomorrow will be wiring day then replace the console and see if the motor cranks. The trailer is galvanized but looks like it may need springs replaced. well see......
