  • Let the Project begin - 1975 Mako 19

    My son and I picked up his next boat this past weekend. He just turned 14 and our plan is to have this done in time for his 16th birthday when he moves up from his Zodiac to this Mako. It has some work to be done without a doubt and looking forward to the ability to essentially work with a blank slate. This should be fun!

    Hey Tom....congrats on the new to you Mako 19.

    The boat appears in fairly good condition. Im sure you and your son will have fun working on the boat together...makin memories along the way.

    You listed the boat as a 1975 in the title of your thread.....from the images it looks like you may have an even earlier model year Mako 19.

    The solid rounded rub rail on your boat is the same style rub rail Mako used on the earliest Mako 19's in years 1968 & 1969.

    Need to see more of this Nineteen....looking forward to following along as you and your son update this ole 19.

    Thx...Eric

        Great to be working it with your son! I grabbed a 1978 Mako20 and getting it sea worthy now. Its great time working it with my son as well as being out on the water! He got my interest back into boating earlier when we grabbed a 16' Lowe and its been real fun ever since.

          Eric, thanks for sharing the insight on the Mako. The title (in MA)

          states that it is a 1975. Can you share anything I should be looking for specifically to identify if it is a different year?

          Anything from the HIN that would help to figure it out?

          Thanks,

          Tom
