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.

VERY nice Mako1114. What kind of bracket is that?

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.
