  • Saying Hello

    Hello fellow Classic Mako enthusiasts. Actually hello again. Re Upped my registration. Was a community member for many years fadded away for a few years.

    I have a 1988 171, 115 SWS 115 Yamaha 1998. I restored this little gem as well as 2 others a 1977, 1982. Also 2 BW Montauk's.(not a big fan of the 17 BW).Currently on my 4th Grady, went from 20 overwinter to 28 Marlin to 257 Advance.

    I have and will sell the Grady's. Will never sell that little 171 love that little tank.

    Anyway back on to check out the project boats, read up on the forums ask for help and maybe helpful

      Thanks for the Welcome.

      It won't be long till the little girl splashes here in South Jersey.

      Had a horrible end of last season gas got really crapped up. Carbs,filters,30 gallons of nasty fuel.She's ready to rock now.

      Gas got foul when I replaced the sending unit and failed to properly seat it. Yeah I know [!][!].

      Water got in while she sat for about a month.Man I'm talking tea leaves,chilli powder colored debris in carbs real mess
