Do they run alone?

They cant run with S,S,.too confusing.

Cant run with the big roarin super cats .theyll be in theyre way at every turn.

v- lite already has too many variations in its ranks.

maybe with class 7

Sounds like its cool if there is enough big money folks that will run it, if not it will be another 3 boat class. I sure hope not.

Will be cool if the bottoms truly are factory.

Being on the West Coast, where we have no races, my thoughts on this don't even really matter. Though I feel it is not good for the sport. There are already small turnouts for the bigger classes that everybody goes to the races to watch, why would they want to create another big boat class that is only going to get 3-5 boats. It doesn't really matter though, offshore racing has been dead for years now imo.

Those 450's won't last in a rough water race!

Why add another class? The boats are fast enough with 300's

Why I thought OB's were bullet proof?
