Default Dawg... CC gprxp

I'm building another Gprxp potentially for sale, if I keep my MSX1500.

This is a factory race hull from 2000. It is approximately the same weight as a 2003-2008 G13R. Maybe a tad lighter.

It will be setup using "bullett racing" handling system, along with a 162mm Skat pump/prop and carbon fiber sponsons.

I havent settled on an engine platform, but I think the engine I have is damaged, so I might have an excuse to go into it and put together a close-course acceleration monster.

I'm also going to show how to build a pneumatic trim tab actuator system for less than the thousands that is charged now. Oside Bill is making mech trim tabs, so this will be a good match.

The top deck has options... I have an aftermarket "CF replica" hood, that "could" be used, and would make a nice mount for the RXP gauge. I have a gp12r seat, so that is what I'm going to use. It's not nearly as comfortable as a 13r seat. The deck needs some body work, but I'm not worried about it. It's for racing.

This boat was originally Steve Gold's old race boat. Here is a link to the build up when it was a triple piper race ski. I'll probably keep the Red/Black look.

Poor ol' gpr... left out in the rain with no friends.



The rear handle traded for some valvetrain parts.
