Default Vintage Race 'Mate pic's from an old book i have...

Hey ya'll, thought you might get a kick out of these 2 vintage Checkmate pictures from an old powerboat racing book i have. The book is called "Speedboat Racing" and was published in 1972. I got this book many years ago when i came across it, i used to check this book out of the library every week when i was in elementary school, it's a kids book but has some killer cool race boat pics, which are now vintage! Anyways, these pics that i took from the book are of a what looks like an "MX" Mate and as you can see is called "Tweedy Pie Too Too" #799. Anybody have any info about this boat?? Most of the pictures in the book, the Mate included, are from the old Marine Stadium in Fla, in Miami i think. Sorry i didn't post these sooner, i haven't had the book out in years lol! Enjoy!

Nice find, I like seeing the old school guys hammering around in speedsters.
Would be nice to see some pics of them in flares standing next to their boats lol
