Thanks Frank that means a lot coming from a long time racer like yourself. You know Runaway needs some TLC. These Wild Card guys are just as nuts as you used to be. You'd have a good play mate to run with.

You still suck for moving to FLA.

How do you decide what class you are in? Radar runs prior to race time. How do you keep people from sandbagging, running slow during class assignments then running fast during races? Just curious The Ironman.

Peconic, Is there a max size on any boat in any class? It seems that the bigger boats would have an advantage. Thanks , Ironman.

Ironman: No max size AFAIK. Speed decides the bracket. The size issue is a matter of a lot of discussion. OTOH, there are guys with much smaller boats but with much bigger balls (Wild Card comes to mind) who put the fear of God in guys who have much bigger boats (and no small balls either.)

You really want to head over to the Racers Milling Area where stuff like this is being debated all the time.

This thread adresses most of the issues you have raised:

Yeah like the little 24' Carrera spanking the 30' twin engine Panther. Too bad the little guy missed a marker and handed Panther the win.

I bet I got a 22' boat that will run circles around many others... especially if it gets rough.

I won't even mention the Ocke 28 World Champions in rough water (I'll just show you at the link below)

He Chris, wouldn't you run in P4? With Augie and Mad Dog? You up for all that?
