    Opa contact?

    I need to find out what class I can run my boat in. I have left several messages on the voice mail. I run in P1 and want to race next weekend. I fig my boat runs close to 70 so prob p6. I was told before if i got 3 or more p1 to show up we could have our own class. I wont be able to do that until AC race. So trying to plan my weekend. Any help would be appreciated.

    Per the letter of the rulebook with your boat being a 28' Panther you would be in Class 5, however this is a Smitty decision and I am sure he will see this post and return your call

    Thank you. They advertise it as a 28 but I believe if you do the true bottom running service it's basically a fountain so its only 26 bottom.

    OPA is allowing 28' boats in class 6? That is NOT what the rules say! Speed wise-these boats may be competative in class 6 for Lake Hopatcong, however in the three ocean races, this is a huge advantage. Length matters. Why mess with something that is working? Is this official?

    Have you plum bobbed it? Drop a line from the front molding and then one from the transome. Measure between it for your true length.
    I would love to see it at the race!!!!!

    Sounds like class 5 to me...our boat is 28ft and I can guarantee it has a shorter keel than your pantera ....besides you would be more competitive in class 5...you need 900hp to run p6...lol
