Default My First Checkmate!

I found a picture of my first Checkmate! It was a Spectra 170 Bowrider with a Mercury 150 XR2. Little did I know at the time what an addiction it would become! This was back around 1998/99..

The Spectra and Pulse 170 boats were the most practical (and scary handling) fast little boats! Loved the two I owned. The closed bow 171 with the XR6 was quite a handful at 70 mph...

I wish I could find another clean one! I didn't know much about setting up and outboard back then as I came from owning an I/O Velocity. If I could find another Spectra or Pulse 170, I would throw a 6" hyd. jackplate on it with hyd. steering and a bone stock Mercury 2.5L 200 and have an 80mph mini rocket! I always thought the Spectra had the lines of a mini offshore boat!

And I got to ride in it after my brother bought it from you! Too bad it was too small for Lake Norman
