MRP - Unknown Boat

Hello all,

I live in Woodinvile, WA and years ago I attended a yard sale in the area. The holders were selling a bunch of MRP boats and cars. I picked up this boat but never got around to doing anything with it.

I have a feeling the yard sale holders may have been connected with the company as MRP was founded in Woodinville,WA.

Anyways, I'm not sure what to do with this boat. I initially bought it go racing it on the local lake but I don't want to rip electronics out etc if its something that is worth restoring. Anybody know anything about the boat?

I cant find any information on this particular MRP model except at:

http://www.codemonkeycrew.com/MRPArc...6/Default.aspx

My boat looks like the one described as: "Unknown: MRP Unknown This is thought to be one of MRP's first boats. Very little is known about it."

Hence my search for information

Thanks all.

Wow! I can't find anything about this boat. Only the codemonkey site even mentions it. What does the bottom of the hull look like? Is it a catamaran or tunnel hull? Perhaps a flat bottom? I agree with the other poster that this would probably fly with a brushless setup.

Thanks all. Also, the name on the side of the boat is the MRP owner.

The hull is kind of flat with a series of small holes drilled into it. It looks like it was mounted on a stand at some point.

I have no intention of working on the boat so I think I will eBay it over the next week or so.

Kind of interesting that there are zero pictures of the boat on the internet. I'm wondering if it was an MRP prototype of some kind.

Thanks all

Glad to hear that it's been picked up quickly - maybe we'll see it back here when it's been restored...
