Good post explaining it Gino. Our boat club rules only allow boats 24' and bigger with a capable speed of over 50. So when we have our club PR's that is the rules. But, every year our area has a least 2 PR's that allow any kind and size of boat. They are not hardcore PR's but more family oriented and fun. There is everything from fishing boats to cruisers. At CLPBS run we had over 65 boats. Everyone runs at their own comfortable speed and reaches the stops when they get there. We have enough time at the stop for all to get there and enjoy the stop and run. We also only have 3 stops,so it is not an all day affair. Then we party at the end, when the boats are put away. When we did Emerald Coast this year there was many boats of all sizes and speeds. Of course the bigger, more expensive get the most press, but I know Stu takes pix of everyone. Being a shotgun start, you don't have to worry about keeping up. One other thing, you do get beat up in the smaller boats and even if they can run 60-70mph, you probably would not safely want to run that fast because of the wakes from other boats. Again nice thing about a shotgun start, you don't have to follow the crowd and the rougher water.
