  • New member introduction - Mako 19

    Hello and good morning.....from a new member located in New Smyrna Beach! []

    Just registered this morning. I didn't realize how the process went. Registration only open at certain times to mitigate spammer attacks. I sent an email to the webmaster and he replied this morning that registration was open for today.

    I've owned my Mako now for about 33 years. She's a '79 with an '89 150 Evinrude. Purchased her from a customer/friend of mine when I was living in Lehigh Acres (Ft. Myers area) back in the early 90's. I re-located to NSB in '95 and have been here ever since.

    The closest boat ramp is only a 2 mile drive down the road. I live on the barrier island up toward the Coast Guard station so I drive south to the North Causeway, go over the North Bridge, and the public boat ramps are on the left-hand side about a mile down. Pretty easy access and very straight forward.

    I keep my boat on my trailer on my front driveway. My trailer though has seen it's better days and has succumbed to rust on several components so I'm now in the process of a rebuild. I found a decent looking trailer on CL but after some thought, I came to the conclusion it would be more efficient (translation: easier logistically) to fix my trailer than to do a swap, so I will be posting in a different thread some trailer-related questions later.

    For now just wanted to introduce myself and say hello. It's very nice forum - looking forward to participating!

      Thanks, Sailor! I love my Mako - she glides through the water soooo smoothly...but that's something everyone here already knows all about!

      The house was built in the 60's and it shows style-wise, IMHO. Very simplistic design. It's only a 2 bdrm 2 bath and small at approx. 1,300 SF living area.....but the big draw for me was the 2 car garage and location. Easy walk to the beach and I have a partial view of the Intercoastal.

      It's also nice to have a two driveways - one being long enough to park my boat!

          Excellent first posting....Pics and all...Welcome aboard here a CM, sorry for the delay in getting you signed up, so glad your not selling air jordans...LOL...

          Your 19 looks great! I had one a few years back, and am going to pick up another soon for my son. Its time he got busy building a few boats. Helps build character...LOL..

          Is that a 150 on the back? how does it perform? Any idea what kind of fuel burn it has if you run it gentle??

          Thanks and good to have you
