Wow, didn't think it was that long of a drive. I know the md guys are 3 to 5 hours depending on where we would have it in Nj. Once we decide I will let you know more. Trying to get a little more feedback.

I think that might be farther of a ride than most guys can do. for me that is an 8 hour ride and i am probably the closest. i had mentioned raystown lake which is closer and most guys didn't want to make the trip to there. i think a couple of years ago they had the checkmate rally in ohio.

thats why i am trying to get something in middle for the north east guys. alot of people don't have the money or the time to make that kind of a trip. plus if you have a good sized boat your truck is going to drink some fuel . hell i only get 12 mpg with my truck with my boat behind it. gets costly plus putting 300.00 or so in the boat. i don't have that kind of money.

It would be nice, last year a checkmate dealer in md said if something would to happen in md he would bring a boat or two. If we do something might give him a call. Would be nice to see some new products
