    Rotax powered Polaris MSX

    I've purchased a MSX150 hull, and it should be in AZ by the end of the month, if not sooner. Plans next year is to drop a fairly stock RXP engine in it and make a nice, reliable, mid-sized rough water craft.

    For those of you not familiar with the MSX, it was Polaris' last full size watercraft. The size is about that of a Yamaha XLT.

    Mark, did you decide against the XLT hull or are there other reasons behind the build?

    I never could find a XLT in good shape that they didn't want an arm and a leg for. The cheapest I found was 2 2002s in good shape for $8500. Parting one out and selling the other, I might have come up decent. I got the MSX hull for around $1200 once it's in my driveway.

    Dunno. I like both the XLT and the MSX "looks." Both appear to be good rough water hulls, without being too large.

    Time will tell. This is a blind experiment for me. No idea what I'm getting myself into.

    damn... obviously that motor is just slapped in there for a picture, but jsut visualizing the angle of the motor and where the mounts need to be, how much clearance are you guys anticipating for the exhaust manifold? hard to sell from the pics since it shows the intake side, but it definitely looks close!

    that's one handsome lookin machine tho
