    Maximum transom set back 3 ¼”. Measured from the rear of the bottom to the rear of the transom where the motor attached. (Use a carpenters framing square to measure)


    Weights on class


    Y80, Y101, sealed 302 – 515 Pounds, boat, motor and driver.

    All other Y102, 202, 302 – 550 Pounds, boat, motor and driver.

    Propeller shaft height: 2” below the bottom of the boat, measured from the bottom of the boat to the center of the rear of the propeller shaft.



    Hull registration.
    A registration certificate will be applied for. When the hull is constructed, the hull number must be routed on the inside of the transom with at least 1” high numbers.
    After the hull is constructed, a class measurer must measure it. When the hull meets all the measurements, the measurer will sign the certificate. Then the hull can compete in the class. Should any major repairs or alterations be made to the hull, it must be measured again.

    NOTE: Boats that meet dimensions, but differ from the plans so they do not meet the sprit of rule or class will not be allowed to compete.

    Default Bunker, Me and Brad Menet

    Brad Menet owns Amber Marine, he loves CLASSIC Boats, has a house in Canada, goes to Clayton yearly, used to work with the Eastman's timing kilos runs and worked patrol boats for years. He has raced in two of three of the last four Blue Water Resort and Casino 300 Enduros...

    He has a 12 foot DeSilva, 24 inch bottom....He wants to race...

    Bunker is 6'7" inces tall, ran 20 SS Runabout and C Runabout

    I raced C Runabout for years...

    i have NO desire to travel to New York or Michigan to race. I drove Darrell's Hill C Runabout, two summers ago when Broc raced it...Fin on the bottom where it belongs, chine turner...Broc loved it, but a little too fast for a new kid...So I put him in a 45...

    Anyway, Ric Montoya has 72 rebuilt 302's from Japan. This is the MOTOR of Chocie for Classic C Runabout. It will be run in SEALED FORM and offered on E-Bay for $2,500. No California sales..

    Interest?? We'll create interest!

    The only reason why I asked is that this class could be good for both entry level and veteran racers. However, I do think the boat design should be a full V bottom, nothing radical, but it would allow the boat to be driven with much more ease. If your going to make a one-design class make it so the class can be raced on almost any kind of water conditions yet be safe and fun. Good luck and keep us posted on how this works out.

    Default Joe...

    Check Darrell's plans and rules...

    28 inch bottom width, no mention of "V"..One Design with OPTIONS....

    AND with CAPNZEE the CZAR, he will have the last word of "SPIRIT OF THE RULE"..........Fins will be on the bottom where they BELONG....That side fin deal is all Johnny Puestow's fault....one of Sam Hemp's deals....LOL...No hard feelings here...I love John and Sam like brothers.....

    The two inches below propshaft height HAPPENS to work out to 3/4 if you add a 1 1/4 shim....

    I'm not a veteran, my borther was in the ARMY but I was a school teacher....LOL!!!!

    AGAIN...Classic Outboard has NO GLOBAL DREAMS!!!!

    Why the single non trip? Why not a double non trip as De Silva.

    The chine design is open , it can be single, double, triple, or round like a Rinker. The plans have also a double chine design included.
    It is shown with a single chine, since they are easer to build.
    Since I sold my Top 'O boat I am going to build one for myself with double chines & make it about 6" longer, with 2 3 gal fuel tanks.
