  • Old '72 with termite damage

    I'm at that point in a boat owners life! My beautiful 1972 Mako 23 with enclosed transom and clean lines, powder white hard top t-top and ice blue hull has been termite dinner for a year now. Fighting a losing battle. Choices are ,,,,(drum roll please) #1. Sell her as is, cut my losses and move on OR #2. Find the right yard/refit guy and invest $15,000 to $20,000 to refurb and I'm on my way with my Mako done "MY WAY" . Ideas? Thoughts? Know anyone worthy of the undertaking in Palm Beach County? Thank you.

    Perhaps you could find another hull that is in good shape but without the extras you have...and switch over.??

      How bad is the damage and is it isolated? If you catch them early enough you can tent and fumagate.
