    The clubs have accepted us as a class. Both clubs now share the same rule book.

    8. Outboards only, must have started life as a fishing motor. Can used diff. manufacture lower to
    power head (Merc lower/OMC power head) (40 lower to 70-90 power head) as long as both were fishing
    production. (60SST allowed) NO 1/2 V6 engines
    homemade mids are allowed, adapter plate or cut factory mids allowed (70 head to 40 lower ect...)
    9. Outboards will be limited to 86ci. This will allow the 90 Mercury Carb engines, not the

    11. Stroker and big bore engines will be allowed but will fall into the CI weight limit rules (42ci Yamaha can be brought to 49ci
    this will put you in 45ci-61ci class 800lbs)
    12. You must have a pit crew to launch and pick up boat. Must have communication between driver and crew
    anytime the boat is launched. Boats must have provisions for strapping during the weighing process.

    These rules are subject to change with a vote from DSRA officials to adequately keep the differences between
    engine/hull combinations as fair as possible. We want anyone who wants to race a 3 cyl to be able to do so
    and be competitive.
    Helping folks out around the globe.

    I would think the newer 13ft Allison or critchy boats would have to add weight a fair amount of weight to meet the weight limits based on what we've seen race weight wise up here.

    We have 5 new Allisons here with 40 mercs that come in about 10-15 lbs under that, one 30 over. That's what dictated the weights. The guy 30 over is OK with the rules.

    Interesting Larry must have started laying them up heavier...an open deck ally up here with a 45ci omc race ready less driver is 525.

    Glad to here the new boats only have to add 10-15lbs great for your turn out

    What does it cost to race?
    Do you have to be a member to race?
    Do you have to have insurance on boat to race?
