Default SCT's 1969 Checkmate V191 Raceboat restoration.

It's finally here.



This is one solid boat, almost everything is original. This is going to be fun.

The tear down begins, with SCT putting in some "sweat equity" on the restoration.

Coop, is a dang slave driver but luckily I got out of his shop before he broke out the sandpaper! He's doing ALL the hard work for me. I recommend anyone with a small to medium size gel/flake job to give him a PM.

Rob, I'm going to keep the boat strictly stock. I bought it from cm member EricN, who knew the original owner. The boat was ordered from the CM factory in 69' as a dual engine race boat to run the FJJ class back in the day. It's amazing how solid the boat is for 46 years old (and been raced). Coop will be re-spraying the red metal flake on the deck, transom,and sides of the hull. He will be doing a couple of informative videos of the process. Hope to re-rig the boat with dual inline 6 1250 Mercs and show it in a few local antique boat shows. Should be a fun project!
