Talking New addition to the fleet

New to us Checkmate this year we bought this boat March 6th in Roberts,WI and I finally made the 30 hour trip to go get it on Thursday, water tested it yesterday and it is sweet

It's a 2006 Checkmate ZT 219 with a 6.2 320 hp MPI motor, just 34 original hours on it, the first owner unfortunately passed away a few years ago and the boat has been in storage waiting on the estate to settle on it, I had a wanted add up on the Checkmate Forum and the owner of the dealer where it was being stored contacted me when he was given the OK to sell it from the estate.

My Dad and My Son giving their approval











I borrowed my Dads new ecoboost f 150 to go get it and was amazed at how well that truck tows with the 3.5 V6, better than any V8 I've towed with



It just fits in the garage



I still have not decided if I can part with my old 89' Checkmate Eluder, I spent 3 years rebuilding it and have more time and money into it than I could ever sell it for, for now it's staying, I need time to think it over and see what happens I guess



Its gonna be a great summer, with the price of gas though they will probably both be parked and we'll be using the quads instaed as they are so cheap to run.
