8k for throttles!

You can buy a Rolex chronograph movement for less. Those "throttles" must be machined really precise...or something.

Hmmmm.

I'm going to golfcourseonly.com

normal throttles will cost you 1500-2000 so 8k seems about right for that boat....

Not that I would pay it, but they are custom machined and there is also a control on the underside of the shifters for the crashable shiftboxes, pretty trick set up.

So is it still for sale - especially if it hasn't even had a proper run yet? Was it just for an investment or something?

Just curious!

It's been sold for atleat a few months. I met the extremely fortunate owner at JB Hook's the last week of March. The paint was done in Harrisonville and the boat is booked for shows and events through November. Like said before, EVERYTHING is completely one-off!!! Eventually it should be down at LOTO. Meanwhile I belive the owner will keep running the 46' BT Moopoly boat

Nicely done MR. Scism. Your creativity is brilliant
