Our 1988 191 classic. Bought it in 1994. Just re powered two years ago from the original 1987 Yamaha 150.

I bought this refurbished 1989 Mako 231 from a THT member who bought it from another THT member that also performed the refurbishment. I absolutely love the ride of this boat and since I have owned I have added mainly creature-comfort items to include an Anchor Lift windlass, bow roller, anchor and rode, forward cushions including backrests and bolsters, rear Birdsall Marine removable bench, under leaning post cooler slide with dedicated Yeti Tundra (awesome feature), Sea Dek helm pad and a new Bluetooth-only head unit. Future plans include a Suzuki DF300 when funds are available. The Honda 225 is still running strong and I have performed baseline and routine maintenance so no real reason to re-power except for additional power which would be nice. The boat always attracts positive attention and inquiries at the dock bars and sand bars.

Thanks for the compliments guys but I can't take credit for it as board member BigNiner19 performed the restoration and did a really nice job. The bracket is a Hermco and I believe was installed at Hermco after the transom was enclosed. The bracket is beefy and twin engine design which is nice in the event that myself or a future owner wants to hang twins. It's great how quickly the boat gets on plane with which I assume is the added flotation/running surface of the bracket.

cheers

Mako1114 the boat looks great. That boat has always been a favorite, and I remember watching the project.

Some beautiful boats on here. My before pics just after I bought her are on page 2. These are some after pics and one running offshore at Washington Canyon. Painted her this winter, redid the entire deck in coosa and 1708. New IPE to replace the teak. New taco outrigger holders. Kiwigrip deck. Tackle storage, etc. Don't think I will ever give this baby up.

I've had 2 Mako boats in my life. The first was a 1971 Mako22 called Gaff 'em. It was powered with twin Eninrude 88 Specials. It was a really cool boat. It had a shallow deadrise which made it a bit rough, but it was a very solid boat. We replaced the old 52 gallon fuel tank with a 96 gallon one and that boat would fish for days on a tank of gas.

The second was a 1989 Mako261 named Play Deep. I bought it in 1995 and repowered it with twin 200hp Yamahas. It was a true battle wagon and could handle water rougher than any of us wanted to be in and I was in my 20's at the time! We sold the boat through a broker and my understanding is the buyer was a research firm that install a fuel injected motor on one side and kept one of the carbureted motors on the other side and then they compared fuel burn rates. Supposedly they needed a heavy boat to do their research and so the 261 was a good fit for them.

I would do (almost) anything to know where either of those boats are today.
