Looks like a doable project for someone to go racing. In Fort Worth. $2500 and no bids.

Is it really worth that?  Looks like it needs some work, the trailer, hull, and pump.

Wonder if this is the one EO told me about a few weeks ago. Not a real Texas tunnel, but 18' Mantra type tunnel. He said it was originally a center steer race boat. Looks like it needs EVERYTHING. Based on the location of the gas cap, I think it is the boat EO told be about.

I agree a bit steep- by there is no reserve either...  for someone with a plethora of parts laying around it could work......
Not for me though...
