Exclamation Checkmate Community Forums 15th Anniversary!

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick note, September 17, 2017 marks the 15th Anniversary of the launching of Checkmate-Boats.com.

It was on the September 17th, way back in 2002 that we launched the website and forums.

Thanks to everyone for your support and participation over these many years!

-Chris

Sweet! Although this site costed me $7,500....I wonder what the next fifteen years will cost me. Gulp!
Anyway, thanks for all your devotion through the years.

hi every one
it great to be back, its been a very long time that I have been here after I lost my mx 17 , and that's why I have been gone, that lost affected me, now very soon I will be towing my mate to the factory for work that's needs to be done right on my 1984 checkmate enchanter trying to replace what I have lost.
