  • New Member, new to me 261

    I'm John an Australian living in Venezuela for a couple of years. I have done a lot of office sailboat racing and owned and live on board a 53ft passagemaker in south east asia and my last boat was a Riviera 39 in Perth Australia.

    Tomorrow a 261 become legally mine. Im pretty excited, she is a beautiful design with great line. The engines will get some love, new electrics and a paint job. I need to keep this cheap as Venezuela is falling apart and we may have to leave in a hurry and leave the boat behind. Cheap but good... music will be a $30 T Class Lipai amp with tunes from the iPad. Navigation will be Navionics on the same iPad mounted out of the direct sunlight in the one of the console boxes. Backup navigation the same software on my iPhone.

    Hard to get parts her so i will probably get a some airfreighted from Miami
    Mako 261 - work in progress...
