Thumbs up PRAmerica Checkmate Article

Nice article in the new edition of Poker Runs America on Checkmate and their future with Hustler Powerboats. The article also highlights a few long time CM employees including "Haftoo" (Alan) on here.

Pages 42-45: http://pokerrunsamerica.com/magazines/pra/2013/16-4

Also, check out pg 9 with the old school 283 Convincor w- triple Johnsons.

That was a great read, thanks for the link!! Sounds like Checkmate in definatly in good hands, can't wait to see what comes down the pike! I still would absolutly love to see them make I/O versions of the 2100 and 2400 Pulsares, both are such hot looking hulls and would look killer with an out drive and 2 stainless tips poking thru the hull! The long deck 2400 with a 502 MAG would be an awesome set-up! Granted no i could never afford one (maybe on the used market down the road) but i would think the smaller I/O's would be decent sellers, perfect inland lake hot rods!
