I just want to go on record as having doused more than one crew of a wake boat with the jet drive Mate and cajoled one young driver to chase me into the shallows with his v-drive and that rudder hanging down. I suspect that it was also Daddy's boat.

I dont like them or the stupid hip hop/rap music they blare out, but if I was in charge of building boats at Hustler/Checkmate Id want a piece of the action.

So, if Checkmate designed/built one would it impact current Checkmate owners support of the Checkmate brand? I know we all like to look down our nose at the youngins in the big monstrosities with their music turned up too loud, but given that there's likely way more of them then us now, it's a virtual certainty they aren't going away anytime soon.

I'm surprised they haven't made one yet.
It's not like they didn't dabble in a Bassmate, Deckmate, Jetmate and Center console model.
