  • Hungry for 282 information

    I Recently purchased a 2002 Mako 282 with a pair of 2001 Mercury Optimax 225's. Her name is Royal Chaos. I'm finding out there is not a whole lot of information on the web with regards to the 282. In fact the owners manual for this boat is not available thru this club or anywhere else in the cyber world that I can find. Is this because of the Tracker Marine takeover of Mako? Any help directing me to a owners manual and other information about "Royal Chaos" would be greatly appreciated. Also I'd like to post pictures but am not very computer savvy, help....

    Thanks,

    Welcome to CM! The 282 is a great boat and with those opti's you should be getting great fuel mileage at cruise. One member here had the same setup and was doing better at cruise then four strokes. Just keep the fuel clean and they will run a long time. What exactly are you looking for in the manual? Boats are general boats and we can help you work through many questions, especially with pictures.

    To post pictures, you basically host them on a site like photobucket and then insert the "img" code into your post. Pretty simple to do once you see how it's done. There is a post in the FAQ forum detailing the process.
