Found this on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=31271

will need to copy and past into browser.

1988 checkmate with blown 454 that runs 104 mph and possibly 110 with a prop change?

Maybe I missed something

That is the worst exaggeration/lie I've seen yet.

I figured it would be a good laugh.

That is pretty bad. I'd say 73mph.

and he must be dislexic(sp?) cause he lists

" a freshly rebuilt 454 With a 471 Blower on top"

that is the B&M 174 blower. probably making under 500hp.

Judging from his feedback on his last item sold, anyone who bids would be crazy.

He must have been drinking when he listed that boat. Maybe low 70's.

Definitely funny. What do these people think? How would he explain on the sea trail/test drive where the missing 20-30mph went? Geez

Maybe he meant

Possibly 110 with a different hull and motor

Maybe he would try to blame the 30mph loss on salt water VS. fresh water speeds, and maybe throw some elevation level differences in there
