The housing is a bit below the hull, but has worked out well. The only problem is the sound signature from the russian jet pump is causing problems with my ride. The US Navy keeps surfacing in front of me, with guns out, until they see I'm just a wasted jet skier.....

Why does the pro watercross seem to think a 4-stroke superjet is coming this year? Have they actually confirmed this with yamaha?

They even have rules for it. page 46.

Wow, good find!

This section applies to the 4-stroke SuperJet scheduled for release in 2020. The watercraft will be allowed minimal modifications through the duration of the 2020 season to allow time to evaluate performance characteristics of the craft and allow development and manufacturing of parts so that there is equal access to any aftermarket part to all competitors. This watercraft will run in a separate class for the duration of 2020.
