    Polaris powered hydro...

    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    I wondered same about radiator in boat.

    My guess is owner was a thinker and not a true kneel down racer.
    As in, “I have this Polaris motor that I think could make an O/B???”

    Wish it was closer looks like it could be a lot of fun.
    Especially for 2g if won at that price
    But yes that prop looks like it needs to be a foot higher?
    Looks like it could use a Little more tweaking but fun!!

    I agree the cockpit looks pretty f-ed up.
    I could never fit in there at 6ft plus and 210lbs

    If the steering wheel extended back more I could see laying /sitting down? I'm 5'6 155 so could get in there..
    But can't figure out how your supposed to drive it setup like that??
    But looks like your ass would take a beating.. lol

    Basically lay on your back to drive it. Kinda like an F-1 car.

    Says that its a snowmoble engine, but has personal watercraft carbs intakes and spark arrestors That were designed to work in a down draft application, Just throwing that out there.
