Default I'm in - I hope!

Where would I fit with a 1982 26' Corsa Martini? The boat will have a Mark IV big block 496 stroker with a TRS drive - I don't think it gets more period correct than that!

What about range? My boat only holds 62 gallons of fuel - is there a refuelling in Bimini and then back to Miami or . . . ?

This would be my first "race" and I'm truly intrigued - and a die hard Aronow fan as well. My dad and his family were friendly with the Aronow's in New Jersey back in the 50's and early 60's.

At any rate - let me know what the deal is and get me the pertinent info please!
