Help!

OLD MRP Electric Tunnel Hull Outboard


Hello

I have an OLD NEVER been out of the closed storage room Electric MRP Tunnel Hull Outboard racer.

I was planning to get a new outboard unit and install it and have fun with it.

Recently I was told that these plastic hulls, which look like vacuum formed hulls, will develop cracks and breaks due to vibration and use on the water from normal racing.

I would like to ask for your advice, mine has NEVER been outside for 20+ years.

Do I go ahead with the rebuild OR start with a new hull?

Thanks for your help/information.
George

Iíd probably make it a shelf queen and he something newer. Or if you donít care about collecting vintage RC stuff, sell it. Someone will pay good money for a vintage boat thatís never been used. May even be able to sell it for close to what a new boat will cost depending what model it is.
