You Guys have no idea how long I have been waiting for a game like this. I would be able to boat all year long in Minnesota. I can wait!!!

Several different race courses are needed.

Choose, Key West, Miami - Nassau - Miami, Daytona, Marathon,

Run a single race or go for a national championship and run the whole series of races in sequence.

Check out NASCAR from Papyrus. This is a perfect template for this game.

Choice of view - In cockpit or behind boat from a chopper or riding on the bow.

Real sounds too! have them make recordings of twins and singles and different horespower ranges.
Your choice of graghics options from a list or create your own, or none at all
You choose your race numbers.
Have some vintage boats as well.

We need a lot more race sites than that to keep everyone interested. Of course Sarasota will be the big $$$ super bowl

What I think might be a cool addition to the game is to be able to show damage to the boat. Some of the car games like Grand Theft Auto 3 or Vice City will show physical damage to cars when you wreck into objects. Show damage when you wreck into another boat or stuff too hard. Also, would we be allowed to say, if you went off course, run onto the beach or hit a peer??
