Bargin Honda 225 boat

Its a fantastic series, the reason I am selling is I cannot justify the costs when I tell my staff they must have a pay cut, then I turn to them and say "buy the way I'm off powerboat racing this weekend !!!!" it does not work.... So I want to have a break from it and get my business back on the right track. This is a great boat.

People over the years have come out of boats but due to very little publicity of powerboat racing you never get to see or hear about it.

I think the question you should be asking is how many boats have capsized and or thrown crews out compared to other classes?

Well I think it was 1 all at plymouth last year with the OCR boys.....

You have to get into stats to work that one out... Honda/F4sa ran 36 races last year over the 5 weekends - average of 17 boats per race so 17*36 = 612, lets call them "boat races" as units.

7 ejections / rolls? just a guess...... 100/612 *7 = 1.14% eg. on average you will get thrown out your boat / sink 1 in 90 races.....

Round britain - 6 legs, average of 30? boats per leg = 180 "Boat Races"
1 incident where a crew got wet I know about 100/180 *1 = 0.55%

Hence my conclusion is if you enetered round britain, you are only half as likely to get wet as racing in Honda...

Bit of fun - should really do some work......

The boats do have a tendency to roll and crews get thrown out, but what i was trying to get at is that over the nine year period so far no one has got seriously hurt.

When you enter the sport of powerboat racing you have to accpet it is dangerous just like any other motorsport.

COOKEE, MARK COCKMAN HERE, DRIVER OF BUILDBASE HONDA 225 RACE BOAT, BUT YOU KNOW BE,
THE THING IS AS YOU KNOW ME AND MY FAMILY HAVE RACED FOR MANY OF YEARS AND IN MANY DIFFERENT CLASSES.
THE THING WITH THE HONDA'S IS THAT WITH KEEPING SPONSORS AND PRESS, YOU NEED TO BE CLOSE TO THE SHORE.
SOME THING WE ALL KNOW IS NOT GOOD FOR A POWERBOAT RACER.
PUTTING ANY STEEPED HULL THROUGH THE TIGHT COURSE'S THAT WE DO WILL END IN SOME SORT OF DIFFICULT DRIVE, AND MAYBE A BOAT TURNING OVER.
OVER THE YEARS OTHER RACERS HAVE, LETS SAY, PUT HONDA DOWN, AND, IN THE PAST HONDA WAS STARTED, AS A CLASS/ SERIES FOR THE BEGINNERS.
BUT IN THE CURRENT CLASS, ANY SETUP OF MOST HONDA BOATS, IS AS GOOD, AND IN SOME, BETTER THAN ANY OTHER RACING CLASS CURRENTLY RACING.
THE THING IS, PUT ANY TYPE OF BOAT UNDER SUCH TIGHT RACING TO KEEP ITS PRESS, AND THEY WILL ALSO END IN SOME """FUN""".
THE SERIES AT PRESENT IS DOING WELL, READY FOR THE START OF THE 2009 YEAR.
BACK TO NEILS BOAT, A GREAT BUY FOR ANYONE WISHING TO JOIN THE CURRENT "LARGEST RACING SERIES IN THE WORLD".

Hi Mark,

Ok no need to shout!

Yes I know your family - say hi to everyone!

No intention of putting Honda down at all - I had the pleasure of driving a front running Honda 225 for SportsBoat and Rib last summer, and whilst I didn't do any high speed cornering I did get it up to top speed and with the Honda sponsorship and the look of the boats along with the numbers of boats involved it certainly deserves to do well. The reason for my comment was only in reply to 225's comment that "The series is coming up to its 10th year, has any major accidents happened yet?........"

Good luck to you and the gang for this season and let me know how you get on!
