I own a 1982 Checkmate Diplomat with a 150 merc Black Max. A few pictures attached. Very nice for a 41 year old boat. Very fast too...almost too fast for an old guy like me!

Does anyone know what make is a temperature gauge for a 2000 Checkmate zt240?
The glass globe is broken and looking to find a gauge that is a replacement. The one that is on there now is black face with the yellow ring around the back.
I just bought a 1987 Checkmate 19' with the big block 454 and I can't figure out what model it is. My insurance company wants to know, Does anyone know which model it is....
Hi Everyone... New here just wanted to give a shout out to the community
H Simbert. In 1987 the only 19 foot boat Checkmate made was an Exciter. However your boat does not look like an exciter. Your boat looks like a 20 foot Senator

Where is the boat located? The picture is hard to tell if the finish is original? Is it metal flake?
