Question Fancy it ??

OK, This is an idea, only an idea,


OCR "C" Class.........

As there are no other boats in this class at the moment i have had a thought(yes it hurt)

IF all you had to do was get a licence, pay your entry into the race AND a seaquel 14 was available to you for racing FREE OF CHARGE?, who would be interested?

thats the plan............

anyways, theres lots of people on this forum Fullerv themeselves, "i've raced for years" types....catch my drift?

I reckon if theres only 6-8 outings in a year, this forums members alone should take care of most of them!

1) the 'dudes
2) Matt & whomever
3) John & Tony
4) garfie and someone from his care home
5) Me & "him"

see, we are nearly sorted!

I reckon that you'd have to impose a minimum weight limit, including crew. Otherwise team lardarse won't stand a chance against team streak-o-piss!

I was just about to post summat similar, then saw this!

Clearly, TD and I would need dispensation to run a 300 X on the seaquel to keep things nice and fair.

And just for the record, it's 'Rubbergut racing', NOT 'team Lardarse'

How exactly would you break it?
Anyhow in answer to your question, if its not too costly then yes.

But realisticaly speaking, looked after she shouldnt break!

i am not interested in someone who when something silly is wrong is going to hand it back and wash their hands of it...........
they must be willing to get their hands dirty now and again......

That's brave talk!

It's surprising what gets broken when racing, ask Honda.
