i have heard that spinelli props are used a lot for racing cats.and are usually cleavers that give a lot of stern lift.where as monohull boats like rings etc need more bow lift rather than stern lift.

Rakers are great on 18's in the flat - not a rough water prop or one for the faint hearted - what gives them thier speed (among other things) is the bow lift, which can make them a handfull in choppy conditions!

Rakers are an OMC prop and give good bow lift, however they only go up in even numbers from 22 to 28 or 30.
If you are running a mono then I wouldnt suggest running a cleaver, unless you want the ass of the boat walking around the place.
Can anyone tell me what state offshore is in the UK?
What about the Honda classes?
We are having a honda 150hp class this year in New Zealand on a locally made 19ft mono. Are they takeover merchants who want to run offshore?
I see that in the UK they run there own meetings.
Only 5 boats at present here for the first race on 30/01/05 but the Honda organisers are telling us that they will have huge numbers out there.
I am a purebred offshore racer, 27ft cat with twin 2.5EFI runs well over 100.

Well from Honda we have 2 calsses, the 150 & 225 now but as for the rest of offshore there are various classes from Kids (8 years +) to class 1.

We have offshore circuit, zapcat/thundercats, Ribs, V24, ClassIII (2L) and so on.

We have national championships and basic racing along with club classic, european and waterspeed record events from February to October nearly 50 events on next years calandar across the country.

What about there in NZ?
