Funny stuff Gino, I had the identical boat except with the open bow as a 16 year old kid. We had a ski boom on the back and burned gas 7 days a week on a small ski lake in Illinois. Fun times. It had an 18 gallon tank so a little easier to fill up as well (about $20 bucks back then to fill it up)!!!!! As you said, that was exactly 30 years ago too!!!!!!

Gino too funny... in High School my good friend had a 16' Checkmate with a 90 Merc and we ran around the river wave jumping for many of summers having a blast... following graduaton from high school I bought a 18' Checkmate with a 235 Evinrude, thought I was on top of the world!!!!

Looks like it. I had one in the 80's - they ran strong.
