    I could not find anything on motor restrictions on it. Probably could put an A motor on it no problem.

    Default 6 HP or 8 HP

    It says 6 HP or 8 HP. Depending on weight.

    From the Chesapeak Light Craft description:

    We've gotten permission from the Cocktail Class Association to produce a kit for their ridiculously nifty 8-foot racer, called the "Skua." It's powered by either a 6hp or 8hp outboard, depending on how much the skipper weighs.

    Default No safety concerns?

    I went on the "Cocktail Boat Racing" site and was amazed to see kids driving boats without wearing helmets, questionable life jackets, no kill switch that I could see, and boats without proper racing throttles that would return the engines to idle when the driver is ejected. This is something someone wants to promote?? Certainly nobody that has ever turned a lap in competition would be in favor of that setup. What am I missing?

    From their web site.... INSTALLING AN ENGINE KILL SWITCH

    Nobody's promoting anything, just an FYI about other racing.

    Carl.......... let's do it..... not too expensive.

    Just discussed Cocktail Class on hydroracer as well: I'll copy my reply here;

    3 second google search result: https://ccwbra.com/ ( There is actually a drawing of a mixed drink as their logo! )

    CCWBRA class of Six (6) HP (4)-cycle outboard motors manufactured by Tohatsu with the following model designation: MFS6CS or MFS6CDS. The CCWBRA was founded in 2010 to encourage and organize racing in the Cocktail Class Runabout. Based on the out-board racer SKUA, an 8 ft. plywood skimmer designed in 1939 by Charles MacGregor, the Cocktail Class Runabout is an economical, easily constructed and exciting runabout. It is ideal for racing at all skill levels and ages.
    Although a young powerboat racing organization, the CCWBRA and its one-design Cocktail Class Runabout have received overwhelming enthusiasm and support from around the world. Boats are being built and raced in 33 states and 7 countries. We are sure they will engage all generations of your family and friends for many years to come!
