    Resto/ Custom Checkmate Enticer 17" 70mph 175 Merc Black Max

    One of a kind "encapsulated" 1987 Enticer W - 1988 Merc Black Max 175

    I did a major restoration - modification to it 4 years ago...
    you can see all the photos at
    checkmate-boats.com - "encapsulated " - "Restoration Discussion"
    http://checkmate-boats.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25332

    Too many new parts to list.!

    Complete overhaul of engine - new everything! Runs awesome!

    including:
    New Paint
    New upholstery, all composite backing (see before pic)
    New Floor all composite with epoxy (see before pic)
    New custom decals
    New white gauges
    New wiring
    Custom encapsulated and stripped down for t
    hat race boat look
    Several 4 blade props come with (including ski pole not pictured)

    The boat is just about perfect - new - custom everything... runs awesome..!

    I've owned this boat for 20yrs... 95% of it time was in freshwater lakes and rivers in Orlando

    I get compliments on it everywhere I go..! However I've gotten into the sport of spearfishing and I'm ready to sell it. She is just collecting dust in storage. Trailer has new everything wheels bearings , bunks, bumpers.

    I have over $8000 in the restoration.. Make me an offer. Low ballers don't even bother

    lol sorry man!

    I have over $8000 in the restoration.. I'm in no big hurry to sell. For sale best offer..

    I just hate that its sitting collecting dust and mildew. Someone needs to take it and have fun with it.

    Does that mean you are asking $8,000 for your boat?

    OBO make me an offer... I'm reasonable... it was a labor of love... I did the resto for the fun of it...

    The worst of it-
    I think the cheapy stereo is toast, the new speakers are good to go, boat suffered a scratch in the bow and stern, passenger seat is fine however the fiberglass block that it sits on (see before pic) needs some minor glass work/ reinforcement/ no big deal, the new cowling decals are starting to bubble due to the heat? or I put them on wrong IDK?

    I have a ton of misc parts and (four) 4 blade props and ski **** you can have too

    Here is another... before pic..., illustrating all of the composite material I used for upholstery backing and new floor.
    For the floor I used a much thicker piece combined with an epoxy resin and fiberglass. The bucket seats also got the royal treatment before upholstery. The only wood in the boat is in the transom. I had it checked out by two different marinas before I even started this restoration. It transom checked out in good/ solid condition.
