Title: Speed Chart
Post by: jimpen on December 09, 2014, 07:02:13 PM
I would like to see if there would be any interest in putting together a list of the top 25 fastest SCJB and meet twice a year on flat water to sort the list out.  With Brad's permission of course.

No interest from me unless the water is 40F and moving at 8mph over rocks the size of police cruisers. ..

Then I'm in.  Hahaha. ..

Jake I will give you the simple reasons.  For myself it comes down to two reasons bank account and prior family commitments.  You will understand when you have kids.  I take river trips now and this would not be much different from most of my trips.  If all of the above mentioned items were not a problem I still would not put up that kind of money up to race against 4 or 5 boats and play the numbers game.  And no disrespect to the guy's that do it just not my gig.

Yeah, racing the series and what not is very expensive. Racing to a number is not for everybody, I get that.
But, racing on the river is a game of who leaves first or who saw what. It's never a fair race on the river. But then again.... That's the fun in it. 👍👍👍

There's always somebody faster!!!!
But I do love doing that racing thing with you and your family Jake. It's expensive I could never afford it. But I can live my racing dreams through you. GOOD TIMES !!!
As long as I have my little hot rod boat to get my blood flowing  is good enough for me. 👍👍👍

I think we should just run what you brung at the river period. No advantage for anyone. If the water is good or not. River racing is the fun part. Its like street racing. No prep no special conditions. Someone revs you up and you either beat their ass or get your ass beat. Simple as that. Ill public my cruiser up against any boat :-)
