Default Checkmate Cobra SportJet Prototype $500

Anyone remember the Checkmate Cobra Raceboat. Well back when the Mercury SportJets were popular, Checkmate made one to test it with the SportJet. I don't know much about it, Kip or Mike might know more.
Anyway, SCT came across this on Craigslist and posted it to his thread.
Being the person that I am, and it being close by, I went and got it.
The person I got it from had said that he found it in some ladies yard and that if he didn't buy it she was going to take it to the landfill.
He had it for a few years and then decided to sell it.
I brought it home and cleaned it up some and put it on a trailer.
There is very little wood in it, and what is there has turned to rot. But like a said not a lot of wood, just stringers and a bench seat board.
I've been quietly searching for a big SportJet to swap into it. But haven't had time or the money.
Recently I have been toying with the idea of converting it into an outboard, since the Cobra hull was based on the old Predictor hull.
Rather than that, I've decided to sell it, I have so many other project to do.
The boat has no HIN! It was a prototype, so it really didn't need one.

It is basic black all over, and the top side is dulled from the sun. It will sand and buff back to shiny I did try a spot.


Anyway, $500 for the boat, $300 for the trailer.

That's pretty cool! I've often wondered how something like that would run with a bigger high HP jet-ski motor, like a Kawi Ultra 250 or something along those lines. Weren't the Cobra hulls originally 4 cylinder I/O's? Wish i had the time and the knowledge to put into a project like that....

Looks to me like a LS would fit in there quite nicely.....
