    Default Comp Jet circle boat questions

    My buddy and I are going to start building a boat to go racing circles for the 2014 season what would be the best choice of hull and pump? Im thinking of getting a Rogers but since I`m into V-Drives Im totally lost... But my buddy has good reason to love CJ`s and I think it looks like a awesome time driving it..Plus my wife has never said anything about anything except expressing concerning about a prop boat if I was going to do this she rather she me drive a jet and since shes a great women I can do this..However I do enjoy the jets at the drags their awesome..
    However another friend has offered up his running (455 Olds) with 1/2 stringers / false floor, MGF 18`-00" Challenger or Charger boat for $3,500 its a pretty nice solid boat he just hasnt used it in years but the the motor/pump are useless to what we want to do with it... another concern about this boat is that how strong is this type of hull and would it be a runner with a Badass motor/pump? Thanks for the opinions, Tom

    Comp Jet requires full stringer boats. 18' flat deck Rogers seem to be the most prefered, from what i've heard.
    We ran a 19' Rogers for 3 years and did okay.

    Like 76 Bonneville posted, the boat must be an full exposed stringered boat. The Rogers seem to pretty well

    Rogers seam to be a decent speed boat but lack the control a few other boats that are out there, I think the Liberty's are the best all around boat they are a little less forgiving and do take a bit more skill IMO to drive correctly. I had a rare Eliminator CJ built boat that was a good boat to me.
    Its a FORD thing chevy's arent quick enough to understand

    Was the Eliminator called "Warlock" back in the day ?

    Which bottom was on the Eliminator? I'll assume it was one of the semi-V bottoms but was it the one with or without the spoon?
    So many projects, so little time

    Im still curious how one of those biesemeyer jet hulls would perform. I know there are guys that said they dont turn worth a crap but i dont think any of them really put any time into the setup either.

    Really!? You have any pics or other info on it? I love the look of those hulls, I almost bought one of craigslist a year or two back.
