Default Checkmate Adds Low-Cost 20-footer

I should have photos to add to this next week,

They did a photo shoot last week, but as I understand it conditions didn't cooperate.

I wonder how this boat differs from their popular 21 foot Pulsare. My Dad had one of those and it was a pretty nice boat.

Totally different hull...wider beam/shorter length. The boat can handle way more power...a 3.0 liter 225 will have the boat running mid 70's!

I personally cut and installed the non-skid in the deck plug for Checkmate on this model. I have seen the first boat, but no photos of it finished. I think the first one has a 115 Merc on it for testing? It is a sharp looking little boat!

I am so excited about the revived interest in the smaller sport boats! These are true driver's boats, not just a "point and shoot" boat.
