Todd, I've said it time and time again, you're boat is incredible. It looks sharp, rides great, has a nice trailer, overall really tough to beat for the price you're asking.

Personally, to answer East Coast B's question, I'm not fond of the twin, "loveseat" configuration. That was the one and only thing keeping me from considering your 32.

Todd;
I have`nt had any luck selling the Checkmate either. I beleive it is for the very reasons that East Coast B has stated in his post. I remember running back to Chicago from Michigan City last september next to you guys. Your boat sure seemed to run well then. Keep it and enjoy it for another season. Maybe the market will improve next year.

Thanks for everyones input. The bolster seats hasn't seemed to be an issue. In fact after going for a ride in my boat most all people have said how much they enjoyed having the side-by-side. Much easier to carry on a conversation, seems like more room in the cockpit, eaiser access to the cabin and having more dash area allowes for better arrangement and more gauges if you'd like. If I were to build another boat I'm sure I'd go with the side-by-side arrangement again.

Not to change the subject but I was thinking of buying a Motor home for hunting, Wow have you seen the price drop of these. Last time I looked at an old 90's pusher they were in the 100 k range now there in the 20k. The new ones are around 70k, man I'm glad I did'nt take that hit.

Hey Todd, it definately has its merits, I actually like what it does to the cabin arrangement. Just a personal thing, I just like the center walkway and having plenty of room while driving, it's what I've become used to.

I'll second ATT on the side-by-side. Its my choice from here on out. I really like the way they cockpit config with them, as well as the cabin, and huge head.

It took me 9 months to sell my old boat!! It was the motor that was stopping the sale each time (whippled 454ci 700hp) I was just about to pull it and put a stock unit in, but some speed guy wanted it. Plus the boat was 23' that ran 95 mph.

Soft market, it takes time.

Todd, Now that you are going to keep the boat are you and Tracy willing to go to Florida??? I have off weeks of March 21 March 28 April 4 from work with more weeks off to follow I'm told. God I love being late off from work and getting paid for it!!! During those weeks I have to spend a couple of weekdays with my son were taking him to Disneyworld and Grandpa is driving them home. I wanted to run down to the Keys. Insted of writing a book here give me a call when you get a chance.
