    If you are looking for an experieinced dealer take a look at www.flamingomotorsports.com up in Palmer MA. Exit 8 off the pike.

    For a washer blow out they pull and clean the entire engine. Everytime I go in there they have one engine pulled and 2 or 3 skis waiting. They have done quite a few and they service manager has repeated what has been said here. 07 is the worst year.

    Give them a call and discuss it with them. As of Saturday there was one engine on the bench and 2 others waiting.

    if you pop up there take a look at the can-am spyder.

    Ceramic is not as dumb as you think. We're not talking about ceramic pottery here. Ceramic when used in this application dissipates heat better than metal and it is harder than a lot of metals. the only disadvantage is that it is very brittle when put in a bind versus metal which doesn't shatter.

    It is my belief that the ceramics only fail when the boat is un-hooked and hitting the limiter causing unwanted harmonics transferred to the s/c shaft while the clutch is doing it's job and it fractures at high rpm. Not that I would ever trust a ceramic washer, but I wonder if any have ever failed on a ski that never comes un-hooked (yea, right, find 1 of those )

    I guess that would be like finding a car that in New England that has new hit a pot hole.

    Ceramic is great in many applications. We use a lot of ceramic arms in handling wafers at intel and chill plates. The problem is jsut as you spoke, they are very strong, stiff and maintain their shape until an outside force acts upon it, then snapola. It costs $1200 and 8 hours of downtime to replace one handling arm. Metal bends and warps and tends to drop wafers (when the silicon lattice shatters clean up is a nightmare). Ceramic breaks and into chunks.
