that would be great, there's the unleashed boat, it would b nice to run against that. no seriously tryin to decide to do work on the boat for class 3 but, to run against big power like last year isn't worth it. so i will give it another month to see who will b runnin or we r going to slow the boat down for class 4.

TKO and Bull On The Beach are two FAST boats that should be racing class 2 (if it still existed) but it is what it is now.

for 2011 I cant see any O/B cats wanting to race class 3 against these big block (big power) boats. I know I can run 94/93mph with my cat (or close to it), but these boats would absolutely destroy me off the start and out of the turns.

Speed it up a little and run SV. You probably only need a couple MPH.

In Key West National Guard, Absolutely Not, and Time Bandit all ran in P3 and they all proved they were faster than us little Class 4 boats.... All of those boats run OPA at some point so with them Volunteering to move up and them showing they could run in a 95 mph class they should stay up there

Default Class 3

TKO plans on running OPA next year, so I assume it will be class 3 unless they make changes and do a class 2 again (don't think so). Throw a couple of whipples on top of your 525's, that should make that thing fly. Then we will be scratching our heads trying to catch you.
You have a beautiful boat and you guys are fun to be around, so I hope you get it figured out and come out to play.

Charlie, TKO

Now before panties get in a whad, there is a moral to my comment above. "Becareful what you wish for" I reference you guys to a thread in the SBI section named "P4 in Key West"

For whatever reason they re-opened P3 in KW, but you guys proved that you could run it, now the consequences will rear its ugly head, you lifted your skirts, now you have to back peddle to get back in the class you belong in. I did it in the beak and its basically parked and useless as a race boat now(in my posession) for as long as I own it I will forced to move up and run in Class 4 with it and get hammered 8 out of 10 times. When someone buys it then hopefully the associations would permit it to run in the class that it belongs in (5).

I have a great deal of respect for all three teams and only wish you the best and hopefully you will realize to stay off the boards with your whines & complaints and be more diplomatic about it, I had to learn the hard way.......
