Default School me on race classes

I see class 3, class 4, class 5 and other i cant remember

What are the classes? What type of boat each classes? V or cat? Lenght? Speed? Stock engines or open?

Make sure you look at this page..... http://www.oparacing.org/teams.html
Scroll down a little, they have "pontoon class". I would never have known that, I guess it's a sign of times, looks like a lot of fun!

I'm still waiting for them to bring back houseboats...on a serious note where do they describe the classes for Superboat? I've never been able to find anything on their website.

Looks like a 30 cat open cockpit twin engine could run class 4 right?

Looks that way if 85 mph is the max speed you are willing to run.

They run pontoon in Lake of the Ozarks once a year. More of a local class.
