I assume top 2 engine manufacurers are mercury and Illmor?? I see what your saying about the temporary mold but in reality it is wasted money. for the same price as a temporary mold you could probably build a one off boat. If you don't mind me asking how much for a cnc mold for a 40' boat??? How much to do a plug and mold.

Yes that was them. The temp mold will get about 10-15 parts it will cost about 60k. we plan on building 5-6 boats a year. So that is why we are considering it

I think its a smart move not to let a great deck go to waste. Build a new hull.

Here are some pics of the deck mold, for those that may doubt that it exists.

So checkmate is going to cut down a deck mold from 40' to 36' this what you are implying? Can't they just build a new deck mold?

The truth came out today on that 36 boat

FROM CHECKMATE

this boat in question is a 36' Pantera. Ducky's Boats bought a bare hull and deck from Pantera (don't know details behind that) and bought it here for us to finish. Adam of Saccenti Marine ( renting space here ) actually did the installl of motors, drives, etc. XT Inovations did the interior and we are installing interior,gauges, cabin, etc. Kustom Kolors( another local co) ....is even painting it i believe. Now you know the rest of the story.....that's it.... nothing more to it. I can't explain why Tom is calling it a Checkmate .....sure we will be asking that very soon. Great boat rigged here......but it's NOT a Checkmate. Just to end some of this other speculation out there...we are not in the process of building any new model bigger than the ZT 350 at the present time.

Why does "most" everybody here have to see such doom and gloom and try to throw anyone possible under the bus on speculation? Give them a little breathing room and let's see where they go - we should all be glad that there is still new business development going on. And by the way, some boat dealers are reporting record sales this year!
