New Toy/ Project

So last Saturday I picked up a new toy. Huge thanks to Josh for coming along for the ride to keep my *** awake.

It's a 1988 Mako 261 with twin Yamaha 200s. Needs some cosmetic stuff, but overall feels solid. Picked it up in Mobile Alabama and drove back with it on the same day. The cummins pulled it easily. Once you got moving youd forget its back there. We did have a couple moments where it would downshift on a wet hill to maintain speed and spin the tires/ fishtail on the soaked roads. That definitely wakes you up. Boat unloaded is around 6000lbs and this has a 200 gallon tank that's almost full. And yes i plan on stripping that blue paint off and doing something different

So couple updates. Been working on cleaning her up. Wet sanded with 600 grit and hit with the buffer. Also started blasting the old bottom paint off. Looks like crap, but once it's all 1 color itll look amazing. Also had to get a new trailer, didnt know Florida required brakes and adding them to the old trailer would cost about the same as a new trailer.

Took her out 2 weeks ago for the 1st real trip and she runs great.
