    When Crouse promoted the 1985 race,the winner take all prize was $500,000. 5 guys entered,the entry fee was $100,000,so it was basically a $100,000 bet. This is obviously for heavy duty players, but it might work. 10 entries @$100,000,there's your purse. There are a lot of guys out there with million dollar boats. I think is might work, but the logistics would be a nightmare.There is a good read about that race in "Searace",starting on page432.

    Who knows , it could be like the tortoise and the hare . Some little schmuck with a 27'er and twin 330's could take the purse.
    Say what you will , but those 330's run for ever and the bigger the power the bigger the problems. A thousand miles of hard running on the water will certainly take its toll
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.

    I doubt anything besides Diesel power would give you a shot at it.
    hell a 33' RIB with Yanmars would be my choice.

    I'd think about a 26 Glacier Bay cat with twin 225 Hondas, you could run 55 in any conditions and you wouldn't need to stop for gas(lol)
