Default 1987 Checkmate Starfire - Project Hull

1987 Checkmate Starfire - Project Hull - With Trailer & Alpha Drive Setup

I am finally giving up on this project, and have evicted it from my barn where it has sat basically since coming from RNGRDAVE. Had lofty goals, however time seems to be too short to make meaningful progress. I can either focus on this and let my 380 Powerquest sit outside, or I can finally add onto my barn and make the 380 fit, which is what the decision ended up being.

Comes with trailer, alpha drive, few motor accessories/mounts, 75% of interior pieces inside (at least good patterns if not usable), and I think there is a box of balsa core material in there. Brand new HD tarp included haha.

$600 and it is your project, exactly what I paid for it.

Here are some pics from yester-years that is exactly how it still looks:

Dang GF, that’s a great price for a cool project boat! Awesome blank canvas for a small lake/river rocket w- a 383 or an LS!

You could always sell it back to Dave for the $600 and a storage fee😁

Good luck-

That's a nice looking CM and a heck of a deal for someone. Can't imagine you'll have to wait too long to sell it. Best of luck with the sale and your other projects.

He already reached out to me before he put it here. I'd pick it back up but our 2 new sons take up any free time I once had.

I just read through this and the original thread.


Did it ever get the core replaced?


Is it still available?

Core was never replaced and has been sitting high and dry inside a barn.

Yes it is still available!

The trailer alone had to be worth the asking price
