just to clarify, there is no p class in oss, if they race together, its under opa, popra or sbi/apba (well maybe not )

and a svl in p class would be a p4 or 3 boat, and i believe octane won in st clair p4...

svl or superstock would be the two best boats... do you want a vee or a cat?

svl is 525/bravo merc, bat boats run smallblocks and drives of different varieties.... it may not be big enough either?

I was thinking the 28'. Attached an old link to Forbes article.

If you had one built with a 525 Merc package or modified an older one?

I was thinking Armada built some canopied 28's? Didn't they race the 28 canopied in Europe?

The Bat Boat IS NOT legal for SVL. Years ago the hulls proved to be TOO GOOD to compete against V hulls.

Talk to Seroff about his Phantom race boat for sale. A Canopied 30' Phantom would NEVER be legal in P 5 class as I understand it.

That's what it looks like to me. Probably P3 against 40'+ boats with twins? Why would the 28 Bat Boats be illegal? It seems to fit all the rules if it had a 525Merc and Canopy?

The Bat boats are illegale due to a "wing" which provides lift.
