Default my 7.5 dpi tunnel

just wanted to post some pics and see if anyone could tell me about how much this boat is worth. ive put well over 1500$ into it over the years and have only got to run the boat one time. thinking about posibly selling, it has a brand new k&b 7.5 pro that has never been cranked up.

That is a nice looking boat, but I'm doubtful you could get anywhere near what you've invested in the project. Post it on e-Bay and set a reseve amount that you can live with.

Beautiful boat!

You'll prolly get more monies worth out of it by running it.

Lots of luck trying to get your investment back. I had one of the first 6 good hulls out of the mold and just about gave mine away. I don't want to think about how much money that I put into mine trying different things out on it.

It's not the original color as the one in their ads looked to be darker. I used to race against another red one and they do look good that way.
My major problem was getting enough fuel under the cowl as most standard tanks don't fit. I tried several setups including two 6 ouncers inline but ended up by getting a Grim Racer 13 oz. fuel cell and that fit great. It's too bad that he isn't in the business any more since he went to work for Aquacraft.
