Moved to Virginia from SW Florida not thinking it would be much of a boating area, well it is! Decided to get something small and easy to trailer. Found a mint 229 Checkmate and bought it just over a year ago. Great little boat that runs low 70's and handles relatively rough water with a 24 degree bottom. The problem is as with all boats when I put her in the water she shrunk!!
Now looking to move up to larger Checkmate, Velocity or Fountain.
