  • New to Forum and Mako Ownership

    Hey folks, I am new to Mako ownership but have fished on them for years. I picked up my '78 236 from my brother a few months back. This has been a great learning experience regarding operating an inboard. This forum has already been a great source of info for me... Thanks! In the few months I have had the boat, and besides engine maintenance, I have installed upper station steering and throttles, new cushions, new rocket launcher (not pictured), and led spreaders. Trailer rehab is next and electrical will be sandwiched between fishing and hunting season. Looking forward to contributing on here.

          Thanks guys. FishTank, I have a carbureted marine 350 running an Acme prop. So far, my best cruise is around 3K running 24mph in the gulf.
