We ordered these custom from Gerry, and here's what he had to say about the Mako class:
"Waves above 8’ take on a whole new meaning. One’s surfing trends towards seriousness and the equipment must be on the same level. We take our guns seriously because there is nothing worse that to find one’s self in a hair ball situation and experience equipment failure … spinning out at the bottom of a big wave, the board tracking the wrong way on a critical backdoor section or simply not having the paddling power to paddle over the ledge on the wave of a lifetime. These are considerations we naturally build into every Mako Class gun we make."
About the spray job:
Gerry and Peter McCabe noticed that while surfing G-Land their eyes were getting burned by the reflections coming off the deck of the boards, and so Gerry tried spraying his decks with a camo spray of greens and blues.
Turns out, it's easier on the eyes and he kept on doing it.
