the boat was 10 inches short and had illegal drives? does it matter when it was found out? do you let them just keep racing an illegal boat? what if they would have won sunday? isn't that more tainted than DQ'ing them?

Yes Uncle Teddy, I agree. You say almost flawless, I say pretty close. Same thing. Just not perfect. Hard to get it perfect was all I meant by the post.

In fact I introduced myself to him and shook his hand...

Perhaps he may be considering racing in OSS next year?

The "CAT KILLER" did have other boats in it's class this year.

1- Cat Killer with twin Sterling 1,500's
2- Instigator with twin Mercury 750's
3- PLAYER with twin ILMOR 635's
4- Cintron with twin 1000's

sounds like a good even playing field to me...........

I agree 100%. Follow the rules or get kicked out.

I don't think that anybody will disagree with you. There is not a single organization that is perfect. That would be nearly impossible. And yes, as I said above, Fountain does built nice boats that are incredibly fast. My point is that there is no reason to cheat no matter what kind of boat you are racing. Cheating should not be tolerated by any of the organizations. I personally like the spec class racing, but there has to be a way to enforce the rules a little better. Limiting cheating is where OPA seems to have done a good job.

The boat is 38' from the drive mounting surface to the tip of the bow. That is the transom to the bow. Technicalities in where you measure points from made it look 2" short.

The drives are not illegal. They are grand fathered in from their previous boat that they de-rigged to build a new race boat.

They had been racing this boat/package all year and suddenly it is illegal?
