    Fuel Stick 1998 Mackinaw

    Would anybody here be able to take a picture of their fuel stick next to a tape measure for me? Mine did not come with one, and I would love to have one with the correct markings. I assume the gasoline and diesel tanks are the same, I have a Cummins diesel. Everyone says I should be able to get...

    Hull Zinc On Transom_ 260 Mackinaw

    I know very little about bonding systems... one of the mechanic's that occasionally helps out on my boat is suggesting I install a transom mounted zinc (4" x 6" Diver's Dream) and bond to that. Is this necessary? Or does anyone have a clear explanation on how the bonding system on a 260 Mack is...

    Pedestal Seat Post For 1998 Mackinaw

    Has anyone ever mounted a pedestal style seat post at the helm? I am looking to mount one but know that I cannot install a below deck mounting/backing plate. How thick is the floor? I am curious if anyone has mounted something like this with only screws into the deck, and how did it hold up...

    Mackinaw Cabinet

    We've had our Mackinaw for a year now. Over that time have decided that for our use, we really needed a cabinet of some kind. We cruise mostly, out to the islands and a night here and there away from our home harbor. We spend a lot of weekends at the boat, our home away from home (yeah, in a 260...

    Trolling Valve on 210 Cummins

    I'm looking for some education on the use of the trolling valve on my Mackinaw. I've only tried it out a few times since acquiring the boat last year. After all I've read about the fickleness of trolling valves it has scared me to try it much. But I have tried it, twice... and all it seemed to...

    Stern Width of 260 Mackinaw?

    I'm not going to be back down to my boat for a few weeks to check, so am wondering if anyone here can tell me the width of a 260 Mackinaw at the stern/transom, outside to outside. I've got a pretty short (7'-3") inflatable and am wondering if I could fabricate some kind of simple davit system...

    Propeller Diameter & Pitch Determination

    For no real reason other than to know, I am trying to figure out the pitch on my propeller. I never did put much thought into this for the first three months I owned the boat, which was only time it was out of the water (and being in Southern California, I don't intend to take it out too often)...

    1998 260 Mackinaw Wood & Finish

    The wood finish on our Mackinaw could use a recoat, and I’d like to continue with what originally came from the factory. Does anybody know what was used? And is this wood all teak? Thanks!

    Fuel Stick Reading

    I’ve got a 1998 Mackinaw with a Cummins. When I fill the tanks (pretty sure they’re full, as fuel spits from vents) I’m getting a reading of 6” on my fuel stick. I’ve read that most people are getting a reading of 8”... anyone have anything to say about this?

    Mackinaw 260 Holding Tank

    I've done a bit of searching on here but haven't found anything conclusive about the original location for the holding tank on the 260 Mackinaws. Mine is a 1998. Currently, the waste hose goes from the head, to the macerator, and out the thru hull just forward of the engine. I do have the...

    PSS Shaft Seal Maintenance Kit

    Ok... Since recently taking ownership of my 260 Mackinaw, I have been going through everything to get to know it, and I am now at the dripless shaft seal. It is a PSS shaft seal and likely hasn't been maintained in awhile. The manufacturer specifies that a maintenance kit be installed every six...

    Towing a Mackinaw 260

    Mackinaw owners... I am on the hunt for a 1990-1999 260 Mackinaw and doing some due diligence in the meantime. What truck you all are using to tow yours. Looks like they're weighing in at 5,300 lbs dry... plus or minus I'm sure. Another 1,300 for a trailer, and then fuel, gear, etc. I've got a...

    Mackinaw Bulkhead

    Has anyone added a bulkhead to a Mackinaw 260? I'm sure it can be done, but are there any hurdles in the way? First thing that comes to mind is a complication in the opening of the engine compartment. Do the engine compartments open up in the same fashion, between the boats that came with the...
