  • New Member -- 1978 23 Mako

    Hello All!

    Ive been watching and reading all the projects on this site for awhile... Now its time for me to start posting on my own project.

    I just recently, this past weekend, became the proud owner of a 1978 23 Mako.

    Here is a pic of her in the driveway.

    I don't know if Im going to have the bottom paint removed and restore the gelcoat or just repaint the bottom... Im open to suggestions and feedback.

    Looking good....glad to see pics on the first post...well done...

    Removing bottom paint is a pain, but if its going to live on the trailer it sure looks better...enjoy your project, and lets see some fish on the deck...
