The 88 HST will be going into "dry dock" on Tuesday. Johnny S. will be converting it into a legal COR boat. Should take less than a week. The 88 will run in the COR class, be scored nationally as a COR but will be run as a Sportsman under the COR rules. Under the Sportsman rules the powerhead can be claimed for $1800 bucks. Obviously I will not be running my SS120 powerhead and will be on $2.00 fuel. Johnny is very interested in putting his Sleek into this class as is Greg R. who has a Baker and now has lots of extra parts, perfect for a Sportsman. We will be supporting the COR's all the way but will be running a fun affordable class. Hoping this brings a little interest back into this web site. The Sportsman rules have been written if any one is interested. Rod

There is no better way to start than as a Sportsman in the COR class. If you would like the rules for the Sportsman division of the COR class email me and I will send them to you. They are basically the same as the COR rules except for running the Sportsman decal on the side and the claimer rules. Best speed testing for a sportsman has been 76 MPh . Old engine , basic stocker, power head maybe entire unit can be bought for 1800 bucks or less. Not certain but believe the rig can be bought Sportsman ready for 3500__ on road ready trailer. So, you wanna go racing?

In sportsman, does the motor have to comply with the COR motor rules?

The Sportsman rules dictate that the engine must conform to or within the COR rules. For example, COR rules will allow 22cc heads and no smaller as a Sportsman, you may run 26 cc 28 cc or even stock heads. You may run any carburetors as long as they are 1.327 venturi or less, but not larger. You may run any fly wheel you want, With a $1800 claimer on the power head, you would be foolish to spend a thousand or more to have the chest cavity "worked" etc. If you spend 5or 6 thousand on a powerhead as many of the COR guys have, you stand a chance of losing it to a claimer as a Sportsman competitor. You must run a 2.0 block. In short you may not exceed any of the rules that would make a COR engine illegal. I would be happy to send a copy of the Sportsman rules to anyone interested in running as a Sportsman. This may be the only way that we can save the COR class as we see it today. The Sportsman is designed to support the COR's and after running as a Sportsman the individual may want to step up to the faster boats or he may be very happy running as a Sportsman where he/she can run $2 gas. Thanks for the inquiry! Keep'm coming, seems to be the only excitement we have on the COR thread anymore. The 88 boat is getting it's "roll" bar as we speak. Cost will be $600. If you can do it yourself, cost will be less than half. Rod

Our boat is next inline for a bar! We are building a Sportsman motor for $1,000. I thought the class voted to outlaw the 22cc heads at the annual meeting? Now I see it in the rules? How did that happen?

Our motor will be a bucket of old parts, loose parts if you will from a pile of crap in the garage. We hope, that someone buys it for $1,800 at Ming.

if you will send me your email address I will copy you the Sportsman rules. In order for someone to claim your power head they must have run in at least two Sportsman races. The Sportsman rules are quite clear, but there are definite rules governing "claiming" etc. We need to get onboard from the start to make this a success. It seems like COR has become so "rag-tag" that no one seems to know what is going on. I will be doing my best to not let that happen to the Sportsman addition. If you are serious about running as a Sportsman, get on board with the Sportsman rules. In the mean time, if some one offers you a price for your PH and you accept it, feel free to sell. This is different than some one "claiming" your powerhead for $1800 bucks.
