  • New to us 1996 Mako 232

    We aren't new to Mako, but our previous was a 2004 Mako 201. The 232 has been owned by a couple of different people and had so many "system" modifications that it's hard to say what is original and what is "jury rigging". If anyone out there has an electrical diagram for the 232 or a plumbing diagram PLEASE send me copies ([email protected]). This boat is rigged with a pair of 2003 Johnson 4 stroke 90's (we know, great engines but don't break anything) so our electrical is a little non-standard (that's putting it real diplomatically). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    No, it's not the royal WE. My partner and I - the boat is named B&B.

      Congrats! Is this the boat that was in Houston? I wrote owner twice and never got a response. Isn't a Johnson 4-stroke a re-badged Suzuki?

      This you...



      I have never seen this model with twins, and wonder if that is the original bracket.

      There may be some small changes over the years, but the 221b and 232 are the same boat...

        You got it right Chuck, that's the boat we bought. And, yes, a '03 Johnson 4 stroke 90 is a Suzuki in a white suit. Thanks for the heads-up on the 221b - I'll try that and see if I can find something. there are lots of hoses and valves in the bilge; but nothing works. and some of the connections have pumps pumping to themselves. Both engines need some lower unit work; but I enjoy a challenge.

          id="Arial">Chuck - now that some time has passed and we have really gotten our feet wet on rehabilitating our 232, we have found that:

          1. The bracket for the motors is a field modified factory single mount - widened (obviously) and beefed-up both underneath and through the transom.

          2. The 2003 Johnson 90 (Suzuki) is a workhorse; but a nightmare to work on. With 3 different "potential" sources for parts you would think it would be easy. But, although "they are the same engine", in many little hidden place they are different.
