That sounds fun.

Pity about the engine restriction though. Why not make it any 90hp motor?

I assume there's a tie up with OMC then?

Nowt wrong with OCR, or Offshore 1.3litre. does seem a shame, but if it's getting off the ground as a result of help from OMC, then that's how it'll have to be eh.

An Etec 90 would go especially well on your boat. As it happens, I've got one you can have for £8000.

So with exception of a P16 what other boat/hull would be good for this size of class?? the size limits are 16' to 16'10" to allow for most of what manufacturers call a 16 footer.....measured as D2 of PB1 that is

I think one of the ideas of the class is to open up the use of various boats old or new, I can think of nine different makes that could be used.
