  • Parting out 175 cc VRP and accesories...........

    Ok........I've offered this engine as a package and it didn't seem to attract any attention. If I plan on getting a capsule in the water any time soon, this stuff needs a new home. Here's what I have. Complete 175 VRP powerhead with pipes race ready, VRP shaft housing with pipe slider, VRP up-down Shaft housing with pipe slider and all mounting hardware with pedal, Rossi 11:15 standard skeg lower unit (used a few times), Rossi 11:15 long skeg lower unit with about 12 heats on it, Pistons, rings, bearings, spark plugs, and a special piece for when the weather is extremely hot.......a canister that cools the methanol with ice, and 4 propellers ranging from short course to hang on to your hat long course. PM me with offers.

      It saddens me that our sport is dying like this. This is all first class equipment and not even an offer. I guess I need to refocus on what division of racing we need to pursue............

        175 had a great boat count at all the USTS races this season. Your negativity is not helping our sport!!

          I've been a pro racer since WAY before you were born, Ben. I am trying to put a capsule boat on the water for next season but promised June I would sell the little stuff before I went ahead with that. There is no negativity on my part.........I'm just amazed that there haven't been even offers on this engine and all the parts I have to keep it on the water. I know you and I have our issues. Kristy even commented about my 125/175 boat when you redecked it. Frankenboat was her word for it. It was extremely fast but wouldn't handle the speeds we were pushing it to. Loved the ride.........So........before you start pointing fingers here, you might want to consider that what we are investing in far and away is more expensive and time consuming that 125/175 hydro to see another capsule for USTS.

            Rob would like his ignition back before you sell this engine(that is a prototype with no available new parts).

              He has the identical ignition he took off this engine (witnessed by Kristy) and its in his warehouse somewhere. I also have been storing his aluminum boat, pit cart, and 5 HP Spirit outboard for him for 4 plus years. Would like to see him get those back as well.

                I'm going through everything in the race trailer this afternoon and if I'm mistaken and I find Rob's ignition, I will get it back to him................
