    1975 Checkmate V-Mate restoration

    Nice save of this old V-Mate, very cool old Checkmate hull. A young guy did it with his dad, nice story. They used Interlux Perfection up top and Interlux VC performance epoxy on the hull.

    Great Story and a Great little boat.

    I had the same boat in 1977, bought it with a weak transom, and a 76 Merc 1750. Not sure what year the boat was....Sold the 1750 in 79, and bought a new 79 Merc 200 for it. Did the deck off restored the floor and transom, and hung the new motor. It was a blast to drive!

    Very cool boat. I miss all the old small performance boats from the old days.
