98 with that aluminum prop, dayum!!!! That's a well engineered machine then! Imagine what it would run with a real prop.

I love the lines of that Checkmate!! Ill bet you are right but you can always build a bigger motor. I just dont know how you lose with a 28 foot Checkmate on a trailer and Bravo drive for $8k....

Thats a great price too BUT how old is it? TRS transmissions?? I dont like the lines or colors nearly as much as the Checkmate but thats just personal preference. This is personal preference too but I much more prefer a single big block over twins big blocks due their increased maintenance and fuel consumption! At $4 per gallon that Formula is going to cost some serious coin every weekend!
