1st Checkmate and luvin' it!!!

Posted 06-25-2008 at 11:37 PM by jimbigler

Just bought my first Checkmate, and everyone will probably think I'm lying when I say what I gave for her. She's a '78 20' Trimate w/ an '86 115 hp Mercury. The hours on the boat are only 1500, the interior and exterior look great, as well as the boat canvas and canopy. It came equipped w/ a Humminbird fish finder, new trailer tires, a new spare, tow lines, paddles, anchors, trailer lights are new as well. It also came w/ 2 new batteries, all for $500.00. I had to repair a seat cushion, a $4.00 fuel line and replace the bow roller on the trailer. I got her on the water last Friday and she runs great!! The previous owner bought it 2 years ago for $4550.00, put it in the water twice and decided it was to big for him so he stored it for 2 years. I will post some pics as soon as I can.
