    Default Just got my first Checkmate 24 BRX bowrider. Merc 300XS

    I got my first BRX 24 bowrider in yesterday. I already have it all rigged with a new MERC 300XS. This is the BADDEST bowrider anyone is ever gonna see! I'm no bowrider guy, but this boat is COOL! Here's some pics. Here it is at 1:00pm yesterday.




    The Merc is waitin for it's new home!



    I got Eric to climb in under the dash to hook up some hydraulic steering. Skinny little bastard, ain't he!



    Tons of storage up front. Also lots of storage under each console







    Behind the back seat is storage and brackets for a wakeboard and skis



    Big storage under the back seat too.



    Passenger cooler locks in and is easily removed



    Speaker pod and drink holders

    Sweet! I've been eyeballing those, but you don't see many on the West Coast.

    • What is the combined weight of the boat/motor after rigging?

    • What are you expecting to GPS at with the 300?

    •*How does that hull come up on plane with the 300? OK for pulling up a skier?

    I'm wondering how the boat will do in any kind of chop? It's 24' but it seems like the entry on the boat is very shallow? So the last 3 ' up in the bow aren't doing much.. if anything?

    Looking forward to seeing how it runs Wildman!

    I'm thinking mid to high 60 mph range. 65 - 68mph is my completely uneducated, ball park guess.
