    checkmate 242 checkmate convincor

    im looking at this 1997 242 checkmate convincor and it has a 7.4L 330hp 454 magnum. I honestly can not find if this is carburated or fuel injected. I saw a couple 502 merc that were carburated but i cant find the 454. The top speed should be around 60-65 i think.
    Questions:
    Where can i find the checkmate postings for the side? since its scratched.
    What is the top speed?
    Fuel injected or carburated, will it guzzle that much more gas?
    How much will i get out of a tank if i do the crusing speed, + or - 5mph?

    The logos for the side can most likely still be ordered from the Checkmate factory.

    Some of the other questions are hard to answer as you haven't really given all the details needed to answer them.

    Top speed is dependant on a number of factors including your prop.

    If you call the Checkmate factory with your VIN they can probably give you the build info for your boat which is probably a good start to getting answers to your other questions.

    The factory number in Ohio is...

    419-562-3881
