    Cool Checkmate!

    Going through some images that I'm posting on our Instagram account and I always liked this shoot a lot. You may remember @WILDMAN Randy Corson's Checkmate that was on the cover of SportBoat magazine. That location (Sanford, FL) was just perfect for a photo shoot.

    That was a 300xs with a 250 cowl. Mercury wanted a "250xs" shot. That boat ran 78. It was a 24 Pulsare. I've had a 21 Pulsare up to 98.4

    Randy, what would you say is the most important part of setup for getting the bow to fly like that on a checkmate?
