F2 is where I began to love the sport. Super Cats are another world.

I enjoy watching powerboat racing and I just wish everyone would get along. We do not have enough fans & sponsors & PERMITS to keep the throttles pegged for the future. SBI/APBA/OSS Offshore Powerboat Racing 2006.

The most popular classes never get TV exposure!

I don't know which is more surprising. The fact that F-1 and F-2 seem to be the fans favorites or the lack of overall votes for any class. With 30,000 plus OSO members, I think the lack of voting says a lot about the current state of offshore.

What's more suprising is this poll is almost 3 1/2 years old. Back when F1 and F2 really put on a good show. Just be thankful Allen4 didn't win this poll too.

Question Re: Favorite offshore boat racing class?

My son wants us to get into racing..and I need some information on rules and classes. I'm re-powering my 74 27' Magnum with a single MV625 Ilmore and a SD. Don't know what class we would be in...or what rules apply. We want to break 100...not sure if it's ever been done before in a 27' Magnum. I'd appreciate all the information I can get. Thanks guys...Tony

Hey Tony....

If you are interested in getting into racing, you may want to post in the racers forum or contact any of the associations that support P class racing. ie: OPA, SBI/APBA or Blue Water racing association in the great lakes.

my advice to you....is do not make your boat capable of 100 MPH. if you do, you will be put in a class where you are competeing against 38 foot canopied boats in rough water. You will have trouble competing there, and you will be beating yourself and your boat up trying. P class racing is based on speed brackets. A 27 foot Magnum would best fit in P-5, which is max avg lap speed of 65 or P-4 which is max avg speed of 75. you boat should be capable of 7 to 10 mph more than the AVG lap speed. P-5 class is limited to single engine up to 28 feet. Your boat would do best in that class.

good luck
