  • Letting my Mako 1972 Mako 19 project begin!

    Hello everyone! I'm a new member to the forum but have been reading it for years. Love the great info I've received. I just purchased a 1972 Mako 19 CC from a buddy of mine. I'll hopefully pick it up this saturday and start the teardown and rebuilding of her begin. I'll post pictures when I get it home.

    In the meantime I am hoping to hear what everyone else has on their 19 CC as a motor. I've read some guys going with anything from 90-150hp on theirs but haven't really gotten a good breakdown of the best for it. I want something quick but know I wont be setting any speed records in this boat. Also I'll be raising the transom 5" to keep any water from getting in the back and to fit a 25" shaft on the back. What is everyone's thoughts on this? Any advice for motors on this boat? Currently looking at an older E-tec 150 or a two stroke yamaha 150Hp. Thanks everyone!!

    P.S. Hopefully I have this posted in the right spot, if not I can move it.

    Welcome to CM and congrats on joining your new boat! a 90 is very minimal on that hull and it will take some time to plane and you will run it at a higher RPM, which generally means less life. Several have had good results with a 115. A 150 will add weight so a four stroke 150 is probably not your best bet, but a 150 gives really good performance.

    Post up some pics!

      Hey there Yello....kudos on the new to you Mako 19...welcome to the club!

      These ole Mako 19's are great hulls for the backwater and bays...the hull bottom is fairly flat at the transom with a decent entry angle forward...this provides a shallow draft and stable handling in a variety of sea conditions.

      Like you said....most guys run 90 to 150hp motors on these hulls. Here's a couple links to threads referencing outboard power on these 19's

      In regards to raising the transom 5", that will certainly help with keeping water at bay along the transom. Most guys have done this during a transom replacement.

      Good luck and be sure to start a rebuild thread over in the project section of the forum....and most importantly....Post LOTS of pics! []

      Here's a link to my 19 rebuild thread....you may find some of the information helpful with your rebuild.

        Hello Yellowfin. Just wondering if you finished the 72 Mako. I purchased one (71 Mako19) from the originally owner well his daughter(he pasted away)this past Nov. In process of the dreaded tank replacement and among other things.
