**********SERVICE ALERT AND UPDATE***********
As of April 13, 2015, the following was done.....
- Repainted the motor
- New exhaust gaskets
- Oil change
Seller just wrote to me and said, "took it for a test drive yesterday, boat ran beautiful."
The following info represents this vessel condition and servicing prior to today, 4/13/15.
The pictures tell a very accurate story of this well-kept High Performance Checkmate.
There is one blemish in the port-side hull towards the stern near the rub rail (image 117). This image has been enhanced (blown up) so it shows a close-up, but the blemish is virtually un-noticeable from 10 feet away. It is NOT thru the fiberglass.
The bored-out 383 has been professionally well maintained, most service having been done in 2011 as noted.......
