    1997 253 Convincor w/8.2 HO

    Apparently since I mentioned "flares" in my craigslist post it was flagged and deleted . . . Hopefully this link will work: https://holland.craigslist.org/boa/d/holland-1997-checkmate-253-convincor/7331204518.html

    1997 253 Convincor w/8.2 HO

    Due to medical conditions we can no longer enjoy this boat - we purchased a 40' cruiser last year that works much better for our lifestyle. Additional details can be found at: https://holland.craigslist.org/boa/d/holland-convincor-31995/7331162617.html Asking $31,995 - I think that is a...

    Convincor Question

    I do it quite frequently - don't know if I "should". Don't notice any deflection so I assume it is fine. However, I wouldn't really consider it "walking" - more like crawling/butt scootching (is that a word?)

    Spy Photo and Video of Checkmate's New Miami Boat show boat.

    Miami boat show opens at 10:00 Eastern. Maybe the photos can be "released" then? Anyone going to be there in person? Send some sunshine back to us in the midwest dealing with the 4th winter storm in the past 3 weeks. . . .

    West Palm Beach Area Vaca 4/23 - 4/28

    Just got back from Key Largo and Satellite Beach over Christmas - was a great 3 weeks. Check Air BnB or VRBO for vacation rentals - we've found some great places and cost is competitive with hotels - especially if you need more than one room. You don't get maid service, but you do have a lot...

    Gauge bezels?

    I had some gauges replaced a couple years ago the bezels were separate - actually had to replace a couple of bezels and you can't really tell the difference between the new and old. (Teal bezels as well )

    BIG News Coming Soon.....

    Let us ( me ) know what you use for the speedometer - ( part numbers would be great! ). I have the smartcraft tach and an old water pressure speedo that isn't hooked up. I would like to replace it with a gps speedo.
