If you want a new hull, they are made by Clive Jones or Graham Hastings of Phanton UK. i know they have been building the 18 for OCR and pretty sure they have the 16 mould as well.
Grahams mobile is 07801102775

Pretty sure you can't use a race deck within OCR as it has to be capable of being used as a production Ski to seat 4 which the race deck doesn't allow and i think k1000 has an age limit. Too short for the 2litre/200hp class.

if you want to go ocr a phantom would probably be your best bet.

If your under 30 you can race k1000 but i dont think you can use a race deck.

Depends on what you fancy doing. OCR shorter 1.5 mile circuit around chicanes race about 1hr, on sat and sun around 10 weekends a year most popular boats are 18/19 phantoms and 130hp engines. or 2litre/200 hp old class 3 which will basically be any boat- production,rib or bat boat running courses around 6 miles ish again about 1 hr usually once maybe twice at weekends about 6-8 times a year plus the europeans and worlds. Rhino knows a little more than me with class 3

100% correct, sorry 'race deck' not used in K1000

You could use a P16 with a 1L (i.e. 60hp 4 stroke) in C class OCR but race entry fees are a little bit more,however, you can be older than 30 to compete. K1000 15-30.
