    Project GP HULL (Need opinions)

    Guys, I never got over the fact that I sold my 97-98 GP's. I love those skis. They make sweet toys & with the right stuff in 'em they can be deadly quick. There's a guy selling his ski in parts & I am seriously concidering purchasing his hull & start with a stock 1200 engine. What would you guys do in my shoes? He's asking $1,500 for the hull.
    Look at these pics. I got them off of the RIVA site.











    Sick little ski ain't it????

    Unfotunately for the price he's only giving me the hull with the lid, gas tank & some pump parts... Here's his last e-mail to me:

    Skat-Trac set back pump with extended drive shaft $700.00
    Impeller of your choice $50.00 carbon fiber Bullet hood $299.00
    Also included in item # 34 is sub shaft, intermediate bearing housing and R&D billet drive line coupler with rubber dampner.
    The other parts that you mentioned are sold.
    That brings your total to $1,574

    That is a nice looking ski. Sounds like a good deal to me. If it was in CA I would buy it.

    I don't think the 1300R exhaust fits in there. I really have to think this through as I was planning on heading North towards N.Carolina or Tennessee to invest on land. If I take this money, it really puts a hole in my pocket. I have to REEEEALLY make sure I do the right thing.

    Its only money, you will make more next week.

    It looks like a nice hull but that is a lot of money for the stuff you are getting. Trust me I am building a GPR at this very moment and am starting from scratch. I have more money in this ski than I do my 02 GPR that I bought running with only 49 hours!!!! But when you want to do something with your own personal preferences its the way to go.
