You guys scared of a low hp canopy boat with a woman throttling? LOL. It just a fun event for all.

This is the second time you have mentioned the rules and the third or fourth time I've asked you to clarify...boittom line is YOU CAN'T. Fact is that he's running a race boat in the NP Class...I'm not the only one who finds that inappropriate. As for the horse...I ran in that class last year and am completely chilled. I'm just looking forward to a real pleasure boat winning the class.

BTW the "rules" do provide the ability to protest...don't be surprised.

I agree 100%. It won't be allowed to run in the NP class.

I agree 100%. Although it is CURRENTLY being used as a pleasure boat, it is a full canopied, legal race boat.....that holds the world record! I have always understood the non-pro class to be for true pleasure boats. It is irrelevant what the boats speed is or who is driving it. This is all just my opinion, and I'm sure that some won't agree with it.

You need to get some cleaner and clean those canopies or give Pete a call and get a new set. It seems they are not very clear, or at least in that photo.
