    Here you go guys & girls, a great investment.This is a 1990 CHECKMATE PERSUADER CAT TUNNEL OFF SHORE 1 of 3 PROTOTYPES Made Of Hand Wrapped Balsa.It is set up for a Big Block Chevy and has all bolt on parts such as water jackets,Sea water pump and all accessories to install a big block Chevy, a Hot Foot Throttle,high performance Bilge pump. through hull exhaust & a complete Bravo Out Drive. It had a 450 hp 502 crate motor with very low hours in it that topped out at 70 mph at 4600 rpm . With the right gear and or prop who knows? The motor is not included in this sale. The motor cover is there but the hinges are not attached but its a nice cover. There are seats, the front 2 are high dollar but don"t match. and the back seats match and are in very good condition and there is a role of carpet for the boat just not installed and it needs a rub rail. I have 2 heavy duty army tarps that I have it covered with as it always has been barn kept and they are included. It comes with a 25' SEAHAWK Tandem Axel Trailer. 17" directional aluminum wheels, The interior is unfinished but would not take much to finish it out. Don't let this opportunity pass you by. When the boat is completed it could be worth up to $20,000-30,000.It also has a clear title. As far as shipping goes we will try to work with you to save you money, a local shipper quoted a price of a dollar a mile each way or I could meet you half ways if possible. Thanks for looking. Happy Bidding . MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!

    Also have a set of Aluminum Edelbrock water manifolds that will go with the boat.

    I wanted to get this over here for future reference when needed.....

    The boat was designed by George Linder and the wood plugs were built by Quest Marine. They made between 6-10 boat with one being I/O. The rest were twin Outboards. Would love to find where the other boats are now.

    It's got to have some decent qualities if Linder designed it. It looks cool.

    Was said to be slower then the 24 Skaters it was suppose to challange and it made a better race boat than pleasure boat. Pleasure boats are what keep the company running.
