  • First Boat/New '81 Mako 17 Owner

    Hey just picked up my first Mako 17 a couple weeks ago. Looking forward to getting it on he water after the engine gets put back together. Im assuming itll be a work in progress for years to come, if Im anything like the rest of you on here! Below are some pics after a nice pressure wash and bleach bath. Picked it up after sitting in storage for a couple years and the owner didnt have any more time for it.

          That is fine.

          For everyone else, this is a buddy of mine, and that is my house.

              He didn't buy it from me. I am just helping him get it going. He brought it over to clean it up, pull out the old fuel, and make a list of things to get done.

              Notice the craftsmanship of the home built trailer....

                Haha thanks Sailor! And yeah thejeepguy has taken on the task of guiding me through the joys of project-boat ownership. Gathering parts for the boat and trailer now and will do what we can once it comes back from the shop.
