1970 MX 15

Hello all, I've not posted here before but I've certainly read an awful lot of posts. I'm considering selling my little Checkmate, but honestly I've not a clue what to list it at. I'm the third owner and actually have the original sale receipt for the boat and the 1978 80hp mercury on it. It's a blast but not the fastest with that engine. there's some scrapes and scratches but for the most part at 51 years old it's in great shape. Runs very well, idles just fine and starts right up. Can anyone give me some guidance on what a good starting point would be for it?Checkmate1.jpgCheckmate 3.jpgCheckmate 5.jpg2heckmate1.jpg

Wow....nice original MX-15! I’d shop around for an I6 1150 for the boat......It would waken it up.

No offence, but have you put a tape on this, it has the same lines as my MX14??? Either way, I still love it.
