  • My first boat - Loving it

    I’m in Port St Lucie, FL. I have a 1998 221 with transom bracket that I traded my travel trailer for a couple months back. I’ve been on the Facebook owners pages but just found this forum. I consider mine a classic Mako and read somewhere that in 98 they still used the old manufacturing. Loving this thing. My neighbor said most go smaller for a first boat but I figured what the heck.

    Have learned a lot so far and have been improving it with all new seating, T Top canvas, Quicksilver Thunderbolt 15.5x17P prop, bow tow eye, speakers, lighting, cooling parts, flushed hydraulics in steering and trim. Having some issues with the 97 225 two stroke so ordered a 2021 Merc 225 Fourstroke with smartcraft gauges and VesselView mobile.

    This thing rides dry and smooth. Looking forward to learning and sharing here.
