    Default checkemate hull speed

    i just sold my sanger hydro project and found a 1992 25' checkemate convincor with a bad 454 engine. i got the boat almost for nothing. i still have my 489 bbc from my sanger, but wanted to know if its a waste to put it in the boat. how fast can these hulls go before they have handling problems? the boat has a bravo 1 and cmi exhaust. any help would be great, thanks

    If I'm not mistaken that boat has a steep 24 degree dead rise and no pad to balance on. That makes it excellent in rough water but a bit tough to generate lift before they chine walk a bit at speed. How much horsepower does the motor dyno at and what drive will you run. Also does it have a set of trim tabs? I would say 72-75 with 550-600hp
