I know we have members from the U.S. and Canada, but I was wondering how many of the 50 States we have represented and how many of the Canadian provinces.

So state your state or province I'll add your name to the list and let's see how we do.

Ohio, for the Last 32yrs!

Originally, Columbus Ga

One regret raising the kids was never having a boat or taking them out on the water…

Now the Grand Baby is almost 2, Figured I’m not gonna make the same mistake twice,.!!’ 😎

Last yr did a week vaca at Norris, Vrbo’ed Nice house w/ dock and rented Tri-toon which believe it or not would hit 45 trimmed just rite, 😳

Anyway Son and his wife came from Tx.
Daughter, Son-in-law, and GranBaby followed momma & myself from Oh. Rented tube from marina w/ tri-toon, Best vaca ever, 👍🏼

All I could think was WHY THE HECK Haven't I had these kids on the water their whole childhood growing up,,, (banging head on brick wall emoji)

Anyway recently started looking at boats which brought back 1970’s - 1980’s memories of growing up on the Chattahooch, and remembering how Checkmate Boats always somehow ended up being the Topic of Conversation. So naturally 30 some odd yrs later when I start looking for a boat, my first keystrokes were, 🙂🙂🙂
