Born in Febuary boating by April, I believe an old Thompson tri-hull. Then grew up in my Dads 1979 18' Checkmate Eluder open bow w/ 200hp Merc that he bought new. I bought my first around age 21, 1979 17' Checkmate Trimate IV Open Bow w/ 140hp Mercruiser I/O. 45 MPH all day long with very little boat in the water, a blast named "Mississippi TURD". Currently on my second Checkmate, 1993 218 Persuader. Designer for Off-Road Machine Seat Mfg.

Technically I had 14' alumacraft as kid with a 9.9 outboard, and then when I was 16 I bought myself a Tigershark jet ski.

As far as a real boat goes I just got my first at the age of 26 (October 2nd one of the happier days of my life), it's a 1995 36' Apache.

No, not hooked to the blazer. I don't know if the blazer would pull the trailer empty. I pull her with a 2005 Dodge 3500 SRW, with a cummins in it. Even then I know she is behind me.

14' Fabuglas (I think) its the company Glastron before it became Glastron. I don't know what year it was, but I think it was made about the same time as the Titanic. I have a 17.5' Caravelle right now that I'm trading in on a 1989 Python Vector 24' that has all new interior and a rebuilt engine (440 hp). I'm new to Performance Boating. Any last minute advise?
