I considered a rudder boat at one time. The deal breaker for me was the comments of little to no low speed manuverability. If you are are strictly using the boat for poker runs probably no big deal but if you do some pleasure boating as well might not be the hot ticket. As far as BPM vs. #6 durability no clue!

PerformanceBoatBrokerage.com has got two Speed Racers. One is a 39 Race and the other is a 44 Poker Run. They both are rigged very nicely and look amazing. From what I can see nothing was missed and everything was done with no expense spared.

If you do the math.....this boat has taken a 20% hit in THREE years. That is stout for a boat.
