For Sale: 2007 Watercraft (Kurtis 501) made for Grimes Capsule
Built as a capsule boat originally
600 lb Top Alcohol Hydro layup.
Boat comes with:
Old dolly trailer (has one of the axles removed). Came with the boat.
Rear steering clamshell, rudder, blast plate, and brackets for the back of the boat
?? aluminum v-drive plate, 1-1/4" strut, whip strut, and shaft log
Steering gear box, long steering shaft from box to rear of boat.
Bell shaft funnel for opening at rear of boat for steering arm
All hardware listed above is in boxes and not on the boat.
No capsule, v-drive, motor rails or plates.
We bought the boat from the Tutle's (who run the Short Fuse ProMod) to use as a backup hull in case we damaged our Promod during the season. It would be less expensive and faster to swap the capsule and v-drive to make the next race. We also started collecting the hardware for the boat to build it. The boat is straight and good to go. We then decided to buy a complete boat and now no longer this as a back-up. You can build this boat, use it as a back-up or even put an open deck back on it. $8,800 or best offer (Boat is located in KC)
