    I'm pretty sure that someone in the distant past partially built up the sides on the transom.

    Overall my hull looks almost identical to this one: http://www.classicmako.com/forum/top...TOPIC_ID=43508

    But the transom on mine has a two step notch in it. From the gunwhales it drops down 4.5" vertically on a ~ 45 degree slant, then its horizontal for 13" and drops down AGAIN 4.5" vertically on a ~ 45 degree slant with ~ a 27" wide horizontal section around the motor. I assume this is the original transom height (~ 9" below the gunwhales).

    They also fabbed up a heavy aluminum bracket that wraps around this lowest part of the transom down to the deck and almost to the bilge drain on the outside. The motor is bolted on through that bracket.

    All that work was done ages ago.

    I'll post pics at some point, but I'm heading off on vacation this morning.

    Great boats...but watch the transom in a following sea or anchored up. Lots of owners fabricate splash boards on either side of the motor.

    I have been lurking this site for quite a while, but I finally took the bait and picked up a '79 19b with a 2002 Yamaha 100. She's mechanically sound and properly scarred for a credentialed small fishing boat.

    Dropped a grand on basic maintenance parts and re-wiring primary needs (switches, nav lights, bilge pumps and horn) without even getting her wet yet. A couple of weekends of simple work on her to come and we'll be in the water until Nov.

    Cosmetics are not a priority for now. A reliable fishing platform, a dirty pair of Grundens and some monster bass are beautiful to me.

    I really appreciate all the information posted here, so thanks.[)]

    After this season I'll decide whether there are more extensive investments to be made in this old battleaxe.

    Cheers,
