Racing is always about bending the rules.... or finding a loophole and always will so the rulemakers will always come a step behind, therefore in these kinda races I see it fit to have less rules and focus on safety and finishing.

Therefore no rules no loopholes, may the best win.

So you think allowing one competitor to have a larger fuel tank is not an advantage? uhhh...you are wrong. This eliminates pit stops, ect...Just an example.
Yes one.. as in Everyone.

It all depends of the conditions if one is faster without pitstops or not. Sometimes a larger fuel tank filled is not an advantage...and there's millions of examples in motorsport to support my stand.

Yes.. but for how long ?

Do you want it filled with TNT or Nitroglycerin ?

Agree we are off topic and differ in our views.

But try a race before giving up that's all I can say to you.. you might get hooked.

Its not giving up. Its simple math. If someone doesn't understand it, they should open a textbook.

I would have to agree with having classes......and then of course you will always have the overall winner.......it would make it that much more appealing to enter the race knowing I have a good shot at winning my class and also that "you never know" long shot of winning the overall.......I am sure with the organizers having a mandatory date to be registered will give a much clearer picture of what the race will look like ahead of time and then implement some sort of classes......just a guess though, I could be wrong.....

I would have to say that it doesnt matter what you bring to this event.I had Joe Sgro at my shop today and i asked him every question in the book about doing this event.If you have big power you will use more fuel and might have to make a fuel stop.He said that Joes OL was the perfect boat for this race.It didnt have to stop for fuel,It got great fuel mileage[1.1 MPG]and was totally reliable.If you brought a big Skater Blower entry you would need a fuel stop and you have the reliabilty factor.Both Joes did this event with not even thinking they would break the record.It did happen though.They wanted to be first back.

Of course Classes will be "needed" but the biggest equalizer is still the sea. Nobody want's the rules to be turn offs for the participants.

Do we really want to see rules that would've forced the record braking Outerlimit to have a pit stop? These Marathon races should be like Cannonball Runs, run what you brung if it's safe enough.
