Leaving a local county fair my brother and I saw a very interesting looking little boat for sale along side the road , Well two days later I am the proud owner of a 1985 Checkmate Predictor . I already a smaller water toy for my summer but I’ve wanted something a little more sea worthy and I’ve always liked the “ mini offshore “ look . The price was very low so I know there will be more to spend but I do like the process of rehabbing something worth while. Already have met with an Upholstry guy to create a plan going forward to build a rear bench seat and redo the carpeting . Over the winter the motor will be gone trough to hopefully create a drama free next season . I look forward to learning more about the Checkmate world here .
