Why would you compete with one of your own brands in outboard if you can do it yourself?

The boat market has changed dramatically over the last 10 years, If you are not doing center consoles or pontoons you have missed the boat...literally. So with them not making a change, they only had the one 25 CC they did not promote worth a crap you could see this coming...sad as the boats were and still are great !

The owners of Checkmate have not seen much interest in acquiring the Checkmate molds and intellectual property as a whole, as much as they would like to see the company continue rather than be dissolved. Therefore, offers will be taken on individual models rather than the company as a whole. On the side note, due to increasing demand for restorations, the owners of Checkmate Powerboats has decided to keep the upholstery shop open for all makes and model boats. If you have any interest in acquiring the Checkmate Company or purchasing the individual molds, please give us a call at 631-208-2933. If you would like to quote on upholstery work or to set up an appointment, please call 419-562-3881.

Paul,
Where have you advertised? There has been no mention of this in ANY trade or enthusiast publications. If you follow your same strategy for marketing building boats, as you are doing for selling the business, the result were seeing doesn't surprise.

I hope they have fun building the wood or plastic parts of the interior.Because I have been laid off for the past month. Dean knows nothing about putting a interior together. Thinks that he does but there is a difference. I was building them for the last 30 plus years think i know what i am doing.

Hey Alan, sorry to hear you are laid off. You might have to retire, buddy!
Give me a call sometime.

Alan, sorry to here this, wish you all the best. This seems like such a waste of skill and talent, not just yours but all who are out of work because of this.

I wonder if they will even do or try to do complete interiors or just do work on the skins? They probably aren't going to do any electrical/ gauge /dash upgrades. I'm guessing no carpet or Pirelli floors either. And like you've indicated maybe not even going to be able to rebuild seat bases or frames.

Just do the sewing for sunpads, armrests, seats in the cockpit and beds and benches below? Then maybe installation of that stuff only?

Small shop footprint and 1-2 staff?

On a much smaller note:Checkmate has always been one of the companies you can call on older boats to find out how they left the factory .mike and kip would always go to the archives and give you info if asked when they had a second .what will happen to these archives ?? I’m sure there will be some Checkmate purists that wouldn’t mind owning the archive of their particular boat..myself included .
