My 272 baja will keep up or beat alot of the boats i have run acrossed IN GOOD WATER but it gets downright ugly in true 3 footers let alone 5-6 ft wakes. Everyone ask why i don't go on any poker runs,the above pic tells it all!! I'm leaving my boat home and riding with mr and mrs patriyacht on their BT43 at SOTW!!!!!!!

Russ
If your considering any of the NJPPC Runs JUST DO IT.
Its a great group, well organized and your boat is a good fit for Barnaget Bay. I did many of their runs in my 25' AT and never had any issues.
The advise above is good, stay back and let the real fast runners go until you feel comfortable.
You dont need to lead a Poker Run to have fun (thank god ), its all about the day, boating, friends, etc.
We will be doing all of NJPPC's runs this year Mechanically Permitting

Remember one thing about a poker run...the last one in can still be the winner ! Better to be safe then sorry. Lifejackets are mandatory and helmets are optional

Cyclone runs dry pipes that have to be heard to be believed....awesome! It just scared the hell out of her, hence she wanted to turn away from it and almost made us into hamburger under Jules 50 Nortech's props. Actually you can just hear me say "stay straight" at the begining of the video on my website.
