Super happy for them!

Thanks for the pictures and updates. Love those Arneson's hopefully they use them again.

Funny how the Checkmate 43 Punisher was built and then all of a sudden chief starts building boats again. Weird how that all played out.

Saw the Checkmate in person this past weekend at Hot boat Hardy Dam and WOW is it a beautiful boat! Looks like it runs across the water perfect!

Don't quote me as fact but I believe they're going to be Indy's.

If you make note, this one has a notched transom.

From what I understand, CM wanted to build one so they leased the mold to them and later the dealership and CM deal fell apart. The CM build and the Chief Warpath deal were completely different and neither was dependant on the other. Warpath was brokered directly with Bobby and his client specifically for the overseas races. The success of Warpath is resulting in additional builds, clients and dealers. Stay tuned!

A notched transom is no indication for Arnesons or not.

This boat is getting Ilmor's drive as the dealer wanted it.

Hopefully they will use your drives on another build in the future. It worked well for their setup.

Bobby told me about the Indy's.

Thanks.

It would be nice to have a Chief section. That way we wouldn't have to search for this thread for updates.
