J-bonz, let’s meet us sometime. Winnebago and the connecting lakes/rivers are a great time, we have a good crew of powerboaters. Be happy to show you around, for a ride on the scout of course 😉
Did you make down? How did it look on person? I never made it, to much shoveling bad basement bathroom remodel. As for meeting, that would be great! I am once I boat up there I will he hooked. I love spending the whole weekend on a boat and putting some distance down and go somewhere. Don’t get that much going around in circles down here...

Yes we did make it to Tinus. It was great to be in a boat show atmosphere. It was quiet on a Sunday afternoon with the weather but I’m glad we went. The 2000brx already had a sold tag on it. Both the 2400 and 2000brx were what you’d expect from a checkmate, solid, sharp looking, looks fast sitting on the trailer. The 2400brx looks great with a 400r! Quite a few other boats to check out as well, it’s cool to see what the pontoon manufacturers are coming up with these days and the aluminum fishing boats have come a long way. Got to talk with Tim Tinus and Clint from Caldwell marine design (checkmate) for a while. Good down to earth conversations. An OB Checkmate is definitely on my list for a smaller inland lake boat.

I hear ya, getting out, seeing new stuff, and talking boats had to been enjoyable. I used to work at a boat store back in Ohio that sold glass and alum fishing boats. I appreciate seeing the new product also. I even enjoy checking out other’s rigging. That had to been a cool convo with Those guys. It’s always cool to make that connection
