One thing they should consider doing, is to re-design the splashwell area and design in a sunpad, and also update the dash so a full digital dash can be added. Color ideas look good, but internal updates will bring more value and interest.

As a now 'local' to the factory, I can tell you the Purple and Gold colors are for the nearby major university - East Carolina University. People around here are crazy for those colors, and many of the locals with enough money to be purchasing Checkmates have attended it.


I like the third pattern scheme a lot better (the red or the blue) than the first. In the first scheme the checkerboard pattern in back with the plain front doesn't seem that complementary to the boat design. Of the two with the checkerboards in the back, I like the red and blue ones better than the green one, too much silver up front in that one with nothing breaking it up like in the red, blue, or purple/gold version.

I'm just thrilled that Checkmate has new owners!

Being a traditional person, I am drawn to less bold combinations. I was never a huge fan of the flames and tend to feel overwhelmed/disappointed when too much of a 'unique' color is used. For instance purple/orange/yellow...all beautiful colors when used as an accent but when one of those is the main color, I tend to be less fond of the outcome. Wildman always did it right with the color choices on all of his Checkmates. I never disliked any of his combos.

YES! To some metal flake! Remembering my first Sportfire with green metal flake over a black base. Both my Pulsares have no metal flake but if they did!

I like all the new designs. Can't wait to see a new Pulsare with a 300 Pro XS 4 Stroke mounted on it!!

Will the new owners be offering the 2400 in the CD version or just the OB version?

If they have the moulds and you’re putting down a deposit, I bet allot of choices could be possible.

There is a really nice new style closed deck mold that not that many have been made from so it is definitely an option.

Coop
Do you remember this 24LD that was at the 2008 Pittsburgh boat show?
It is for sale for 39k. I think it was a Mitcher T job. Maybe you have a proper pic somewhere. Love to see a good pic. This is low rez. My favorite graphic ever. If Checkmate could do more radical modern designs it might attract more attention to the brand.

I think it was Kustom Kolors that did that boat and another Checkmate back then.



Here not sure how good this pic is. I delivered that boat to the dealer, it was one of my favorites.
