    Default Very Cool Boat Racing

    ROUGH WATER, WIND AND RAIN, THEY RACE! Love it. I'd like to see a roll bar over the driver's head.

    How many heats and how far did they race?

    Martin was able squeeze in to the local circuit, so we got a day of free practice then 5 races and 4 on last day i think...
    Weather was great, water flat less when the wind came up.
    They are quiet lively in the rough and for those with offshore skills get a good advantage.
    5 buoy course about a minute lap time.
    One long distance race out and round an island 6' plus seas...
    I gave up my seat to the APA crew chief in the long race as points didnt count and he won.
    All classes less the tunnel boats did a mass beach start for the island race.
    Some of the jet skiers back first then a T 750, which are slower, then majority of the jet skiers who looked very tired.

    Yes i have been lobbying for a rollbar for a while.
    Its a great fun class as stock one design.
    All thanks to Martin Lai 's APA who is making an affordable racing class available in Asia.
    We are just training up a bunch of Singapore girls, all whom race cars, to have an all girl championship.

    Tentative 2022 schedule is another race in Thailand, then Malaysia and then here in Singapore.

    Default 50 HP Four Stroke Tohatsu is $7,400

    In the United States we would have to use four strokes.

    Whilst I am checking the cost I would guess a 20' container asia to USA is probably USD15k+ at the moment, more than the hull cost

    Wow… you are right about that cost. Would anyone know if there is an equivalent similar in design and weight of a US built boat?
