Checkmate Custom Boat bulid

The Checkmate factory and Kip Combs were great to deal with building this high performance boat! Kip kept us up to date every step of the build by email and the following pictures. The Checkmate Pulsare 2100BR, rigging, graphics, and the quality of gel coat are truly exceptional! Checkmate builds high performance quality boats that are reasonably priced.

Late into the build I requested that the new Teleflex SeaStar Pro High Performance steering cylinder featured in Bass & Walleye Boats Magazine article be installed in place of the standard and widely used Teleflex SeaStar cylinder. The new HP Pro cylinder retails for $545 and Checkmate supplied this last minute upgrade completely free of charge! The result is a steering system that exhibits no detectable free play! :-)

The following pictures of this Checkmate Pulsare 2100BR boat build
are provided by Kip Combs - thank you!

The people at Moose Landing Marina in Naples Maine have truly been a joy to deal with right from the initial purchase to delivery of the boat and now with boating season. Everyone at Moose Landing Marina, from the Owner Dan Craffey, General Manger Sean Brogan, Sales Manager Kent Uicker, Sales Consultant & New Boats Set Up Richard Maguire, Chief Technician Krister Rollins, Parts & Service Richard Hodson, and all of the other people that I’m missing, everyone has been professional, courteous, thoughtful, friendly, and helpful - thank you!

If you are looking for a Checkmate performance boat and a great deal, or any of the many brands that Moose Landing Marina sells, Dan and Kent are the people to see :-) Moose Landing Marina pricing is excellent! Their deals are so good that some people many states and hundreds of miles away purchase their boat from Moose Landing Marina rather than a local dealer!

The Checkmate Pulsare 2100BR on this site is unusual with the Mercury Consumer Racing Promax 300X, horse heads, and many other options. . . The people at Moose Landing Marina as a way of saying thank you for the order provided free of charge a boat slip for the season! This boat slip provides access to some of Maine’s most beautiful lakes - thank you :-) In addition to a free boat slip on Brandy Pond, Dan and Kent also offered to put the boat in and pull it out on a as requested basis and have done so each time with a big smile :-) You guys have truly made us feel like a member of the Moose Landing Marina family, thank you!

The tough and sophisticated Pro Max 300X outboard

Rated at more than 300 horsepower, Pro Max 300X is the most powerful outboard on the market. The outboard has an all-new power head, from its cylinder block to its high-flow fuel-injection system.

The block features high-performance cylinder porting and machined exhaust. These developments combined with a PCM 555 processor and a new exhaust tuner reportedly give the engine a 10-percent horsepower boost and an added 700 rpm of operating range over its predecessor, the Pro Max 300.

The injection system has a custom reed-plate assembly with rubber-coated reed blocks sporting single-stage, carbon-fiber reeds. The custom reed plate supports side-mounted fuel injections fed by an anodized aluminum fuel rail.

To operate its efficient electronic oil-injection system, the engine taps the brains of the PCM 555 processor. A system called "Engine Guardian" monitors 64 internal engine functions. Real-time data appears on the SmartCraft SC100 that comes with the outboard.

Pro Max 300X engines are with either the 20-inch center section with standard integral trim or the heavy-duty offshore swivel/transom-bracket assembly with single-ram trim. The new 1.75:1 Torque Master gear case with dual water pickups is offered with the standard package. The 1.62:1 Sport Master gear case is offered with the offshore package.

Nail the throttle and the big Mercury 300X hooks up without a trace of cavitation. Three quick heartbeats with the bow in the air and the hull is already flat on plane. After that, there's nothing to do but hang on. The acceleration is relentless, an irresistible force that pushes you straight back into your tight bucket seat.

At 60, your hat blows off. At 70, your eyes start to tear, even though you're wearing sunglasses. At 80, the hull is out of the water and you're riding the prop, the wail of the big 2-stroke like an animal in pain. At 90, you're going faster than you've ever gone before on water, your cheeks pasted back into an insane grin.

Over 90 mph, because of the prop's pull, the hull keeps rocking to starboard. You have to constantly balance it with the wheel to minimize chine-walking that can turn to disaster quicker than a New York minute. Speed increases incrementally. Your whole world has shrunk to the GPS mounted above the tach, willing it higher ... 96.5 ... 97 ... 98 ... 98.5. 100. How fast is 100 mph on water? Let's just say you're tensed for something cataclysmic to happen. Prior to this, the fastest we'd ever gone was 88 mph in a $160,000 Scarab powered by twin NASCAR racing V8s assembled by Jeff Gordon's crew at Hendrick Motorsports.

So, just how fast is 100 mph on water? Well, MerCruiser just announced that a 30-ft. Eliminator Daytona with twin MerCruiser 496 MAG HO big-block V8s is the first boat ever to hit 100 mph powered by production sterndrives. On water, 100 mph makes you Top Gun. Compared to that narrow-focus Eliminator, a bass boat not only costs $100,000 less, it has a practical reason for speed-- the quicker you can get out to where the fish are biting and back again, the more time you'll have to fish.
