Here is a question concerning the boats that are allowable. I have in my possesion a 12' 6" Stippich that was built around 1978. It's a round chine, old school boat but it has the famous Stippich duck bill front end. The nose is about 12" wide. According to the rules it is illegal but it is " old school".
I have a thought. There are few older boats kicking around I am sure. The antique pro division allows boats built prior to 1986 to compete and not meet the exact hull dimensions. I think its' 86. Anyway, having an age requirement might be another idea. Who knows, if this takes off, maybe will see a few Claaakcrafts, Sids, Rinkers or Broc's showing up.
