I ran the Lake George PR in a 21' Checkmate with a 225. Things got a little rough in the main lake and was soar the next day but would do it again over and over.

I also did the NYC PR (spectator) in my 29 and had a blast. The waves were huge from the ferry's and the East and Hudson rivers meeting at the bottom by the statue.

you'll probably find the guys that run your speed very quickly.......like halfway to the first cardstop........some tips?....try and hold your line as well as you can in the early stages of a leg when its busy and keep your head moving looking out for other boats that want to pass etc.....
and if theres some faster boats behind you who should be passing you and their not their probably waiting for some kind of a signal from you to pass.......point at them and wave them by

The bottom line, is you have different calibers of Poker Runs. You have high stakes Poker Runs with a BIG DOLLAR look, feel, and presentation. And you have Average Joe Poker Runs with a perspective of get out on the water and lets have a good time. They are actually ALL about a good time, until someone shows up with a raceboat and a camera crew and turns it into a race movie.

Bottom line is pick your "battle" or Poker Run in this case, wisely. You can run just about any boat in just about any Poker Run. Its not a race. Its about having fun.

With the proper "accouterments" shall we say, you can make a 27' Fountain gain more attention than anything else out there. A certain 29' Fountain here in VA with a stripper pole sticking 7' out the bow comes to mind.
