    Affordable?? Sorry, but CJ is no more affordable than any other class... Imagine running a flatbottom with a $5000.00 PROP!! The motors are pretty much the same, performance oriented builds, but that squirtgun hanging out the back is quite expensive to build/maintain.... I know of CJs with more money in the pump than I put into a PS flatbottom engine!!

    PS At a time I thought, and said, CJ was dying,(I was wrong), they showed up with 10 or 12 boats for the class.... Not all of them lasted the weekend, but they did have 6 or 8 in the final!!

    Ray, I really do believe that this is a much more affordable class to enter. (Having said that, to be competitieve is another ball of wax.) Most of the boats that are racing are converted ski boats. That in itself makes the class do-able. Boat for boat the flattie has a higher initial cost. But also, a higher re sale value as well. I believe the blue liberty was recently purchased from Lance for a very reasonable price. Flatties aint dat cheap. Ray, (as you very well know) I've had both and can attest that the jets are alot cheaper to maintain and set up. If you take a ski flat and set it up for pro stock, You're gonna spend alot more money than you would on a ski jet to a CJ. Just sayin.

    I know that one of the poor fellas lost three motors in a row cuz he had a v-drive pan on the motor!!! The shop that was building his motors never caught it..... After his frustration he went to another shop and upon inspection of the oil pan, we realized that the trap doors were BACKWARDS!! He now has more races on his new motor than all combined heats on the previous 3 engines!!!

    You forget the cost to convert a "ski boat", (80 or so % of them were/are 1/4 stringer boats)..to full stringers, AND, as you well know, a simple prop change can make all the difference in the world to a flattie, yet performance impellers cost considerably more than a prop, and it may take 3 or 4 or 5 tries before the impeller works with the boat and power!!! All those "droops' and "shoes", and nozzle controls cost bucks... Why build a race boat that won't be competitive? Racin' is racin' regardless of the class, and it's never "cheap".... "Buying" race wins has no class boundary, in any class speed costs money, how fast do you want to go?....

    What's wrong. with racing ski boats. We did it the last 3 years. Carpet, saddle tanks,seat pedestals, it only weighed 1940 lbs.Haha. And we lost US-1by 2pts.

    Rick, the class has changed quite alot from the last time you raced. The speeds are high 80s to low 90s. The cj60 boat, LS powered is making over 800hp and is 165lbs lighter than HBs engine. The cj169 was running around 87mph all weekend. I on the other hand have about 600hp (466ci all iron BBF) and was running 82mph in the cj72.
