    Default Put-up or shut-up......COR-100 Time!

    Allright, here goes!

    I can not stop thinking about this class since it was brought to my attention last week! Seriously, I go to bed at night and can't sleep, I wake and go to work and cant stop thinking about it! If I fell over and cracked my head open right now.....little outboards would come pouring out!

    I may be a dreamer, but you have to start somewhere! SO, me and my son are going to STOP talking about, and JUST DO IT! Atleast make an effort! You guys were right, all it would take is a little hard work, not to much money, and a whole lot of "Put-up or Shut-up"!!!!!

    Most of you when you read this will probably think,"Just another newbie with the fever, that won't follow through"...you might be right, but we are going to try anyways! I'm new to Boat Racing, but not new to racing, I was a District 37 Desert racer all through high school, so atleast I have a little bit of racing knowlege and how it works....

    The plan:
    I'm try'n to sell my Hallett, and might have it sold tomorrow. We're going to use the money to buy a boat, maybe if all goes right, two boats! We were thinking of going with old Avengers? They are all over CL up here! ....and Cheap! Most already have motors we could use! I was reading the rules, and think I understand what I need...Figured, FIRST, I just want to get a dang boat, make it safe, start making left turns, have fun, finish and worry about going fast, and winning LAST! Seemed like when I was racing desert, as long as I just went out there and had fun, and rode to finish.....all the other stuff just fell into place....and eventually.....so did that checkered flag!

    I don't know how fast I can make it all happen, probably too late for this season, but I'd like the chance to pick some brains! We are going to try and make Sparks, and I was wondering If I could maybe make a trade.... Knowlege for Sweat! Me and the boy could offer a hand, to anyone that could use the help, and maybe you could offer some of that knowlege and experience! We have strong backs, and we're not afraid to use them...can turn a wrench, or pit, or fetch, or clean-up, anything! I ain't to proud!

    ...I just want the chance to be down in the trenches, instead of up in the stands! Maybe I just sound like a big D-Bag, but I figured it was worth a shot! I'm TIRED OF JUST TALKING ABOUT IT!

    Heres a few of many things, that I'm stuck-on:

    1. We're some BIG boys, I'm 6'4" and 270, my boy is following suit, were in the hell do I find the Safety gear we'll need to fit us? Is it going to break my bank finding "Fat Kid" size?

    2. Is it a mistake going with Avenger Hulls, are there certain years to look for? Theres a '68 with two motors on CL right now for 900 bucks!

    3. I have two "Barrel" bucket seats sitting around from my Dads boat, are these still legal?

    4. Is it a waist of money to use Hydraulic steering, the rules said it was legal, and I'm keeping it off my Hallett....but is it to much trouble/cost to maintain in racing this class?

    Ok...Ok...I better stop with the questions before no one will talk to me! Sorry, my mind's spinning 10 grand right now, and BRF is my only outlet!

    A Hydrostream Ventura 2 or the Allison would be 5 to 10 mph faster than the Avenger.

    I have ALWAYS wanted a Hydrostream anything, but like 3030 said, they are few and far in between! I watch for them all the time, looking on CL, farmers fields, peoples back yards etc....But, it's funny this was brought up, there is one 45min. from my house, right now! ....I've been watching that thing for a freak'n MONTH! I don't know why he hasn't sold it yet, other than when I talked to him through e-mail, I could tell he was a.......

    Anyways.....I said all that to say this, He wants 3000, and it looks freak'n CLEAN from the pictures! It's a Hydrostream Verado, with a 140 Merc! BUT, $3000 vs $900, figured it would make more sense to go cheap and have money left to pay for rigging and safety???
    I've been stuck on this for a awhile! I orignaly wanted that Stream.....like BAD even before giving in to the "Call of the Race"! I just thought if I tried looking at it through "BRF eyes" you guys would tell me NOT to go fancy, but, go with GET-IT-DONE! Cause I'm on a budget, which ALL depends on my Hallett selling! Coarse I could get the Hydrostream done over the winter.....shoot for next season! MAN, I just can't make-up my freakn mind!!!!

    Just looking at the post reminds me how BAD I WANT THAT STREAM!

    I have to get off the computer and stop looking at that thing, before I go break into our House money......

    Back to yard work, and the 2.4 in pieces!

    Rod,

    Are there any other COR 100 boats currently running? I've been sitting on the sideline for over a year now watching and my patience is wearing thin. Maybe a 100 boat would be a good place to start.

    Thanks,

    Geoff

    We have had one COR-100 running in the past year and even though we offered the "bait", no one took it. Most of the guys looked at those TOWER OF POWER engines and decided the 2.0's were much simpler to work on, easier to find and the competition was already on the water. There are a number of COR -100's running in Minnesota as well as a number of COR 2.0's, the 100's just haven't caught hold on the west coast. Very few mechanics have the tools to work on the in-line sixes and/or just don't want to work on them. The OMC v-4's on the other hand would make a great COR 100, probably run as fast and are very easy to work on. I do believe that with a little patience and a lot of help from the COR guys, you could put together a COR-2.0 for about the same cost as a COR-100 and could go right to the chase. The last race at LB showed a nearly stock 150 Merc on a 700 dollar Sleek craft win it's way to the podium. You can do the same. Call me at (310) 488-3563 I will do everything to get you started, you make the effort and I will match you . Problem with people today is, very few want to "work" but will stand in line for a "hand-out"! May work with our present government but won't work in COR racing. WE WILL HELP YOU HELP YOURSELF! Go with COR, We'll lead, you follow and you can be on the water pronto! Rod Zapf, COR CHAIRMAN

    Thank you guys so much for all the info!

    3030- Thanks Brother for the offer, means alot! Glad to see there's a fellow Desert Racer that has also found his way to H20! Atleast racing boats we won't be poping cactus needle pimples for days after a race!

    capnzee- I'm already following your advice, I joined APBA and got my number... I also TRIED to join the COR website but am having issues! Keeps telling me my email is already reg. but when I try to have them send my password...it tells me my email isn't registered! I'll work it out! ....and YES I AM GOING TO CALL YOU! As for hand-outs....Brother don't get me started on politics and the things Im tired of going on in this country! Hell, I have eat'n at Chic-fil-a so many times these past weeks, even the word chicken makes me cringe!

    The reason for COR-100 and not 2.0 is simple, my son is only 16! ....Rules state, 100= 16 and over, 2.0= 18 and over!

    I'm stuck! it is what it is...right?

    **Update** Finaly got it to work on the COR website, "MooreRacing" member name now *Pending*

    Rules are rules and 18 is minimum age for the COR 2.0's . Lets talk about it, maybe we can find an inline 6 or V-4, put it on a legal boat and start something up . I think I can find you a Tahiti for a "price " you will like. I just did a Tahiti for my daughter and it runs very fast with a v-4 in absolute stock condition. How close is your son to that 18 year mark. He might pit for dad and gain some experience "working" for that ride. COR is here to stay. Rod
