    YES! I saw it last year at the Knoxville rally. It is as close to perfect as you can get. It was restored by a close friend of the Allisons and was done up right. I was all over that boat and I thought it was great. If I could have sold my old Checkmate I would have bought it. No room for any more boats at my house. :(

    Yup, I remember drooling all over it myself. What a beautiful restore job on that. In fact, there are pics of it on the allison board under last years Allison photo's at the rally. I wonder why he is selling it?? And so cheap too. He should contct Darris to see if he wants it.

    It's like 1 of 25 ever built by Allison, I believe.

    I think his name is Kirk. I think it is just a hobby of his to restore them. I am suprised nobody snatched it up.

    Very cool rig. The 80's brown is not my favorite but what a great job on the restore. The asking price seems really low?

    Just thought I'd post here just in case. I saw the boat was for sale and posted on the allison forum, they said it was sold. I'm curious if anybody knows who/where the boat went? I'd like to get in touch with the owner just in case he might want to sell, either now or in the future. I sent a PM to the guy that restored it but haven't heard anything. I like the boats and they actually can fit in my garage. Thanks. syclone01@hotmail.com
