  • New owner of a 261

    Hi I am a new member to Classic Mako from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. After wanting a 261 for several years I finally have one. It needs some elbow grease and TLC but I feel it is pretty solid. The hull a 1987 model. The engines are 1987 model 200hp Yamaha's. From what I have been told this boat has not been run in about three years. I am in the process of pulling the console and t-top to gain access to the fuel tank for removal and inspection.

        Thank you. I am not sure if I can adjust them or not. I might end up cutting them off and re installing them correctly. I actually think that the trailer is a bit to small for this boat.
