Whats up guys I have been wanting a twin outboard checkmate for a long time and finally found one.
The cabin was very wet and rotten so i gutted it. This winter i will be removing the rest of the interior and floor to inspect the stringers. I'm going to re upholstery the cabin leaving the frig sink and porta potty and add a 3 gallon water tank with pump. One of the previous owners filled in the splash well and I'm glad they did gives a ton of room in the back. Mechanically the boat seems very good. I'm just waiting for one lower unit and new props to get here so i can throw it in the water and see what kind of speeds i can get out of it.
