I'm interested in hearing your final PHRF rating. We ended up with a 141 this year as opposed to a 144 last year and nothing changed on our boat.
Last year I believe they started us with a Mk I base instead of Mk II. I pointed this out in our application this year believing that our handicap would increase based upon this discrepency but it decreased.

We also raced against a couple of Mk II's in the Figawi last weekend. One of them had a higher handicap and didn't have a roller furling main as we do.

We have a two bladed fixed prop, roller fuling main and headsail and no racing sails. Our genny is < 135%. The only way I believe another Mk II could have a higher handicap than us is if they had a 3 bladed fixed prop. I plan on asking for clarification from our "handicaper" so that we're correct and consistent going forward.
