I did spout over a bit on that didn't I? I understand EXACTLY what you're saying and why. I suppose that just hit my funny bone or something. Yep, there's a lot of hacks driving J-boats out there. I reckon ya have the choice to not put yourself in a position to take it to the room or not. It's not like it's gonna cost ya THAT much time on the course. I agree that in cruising situations or situations involving mixed vessel types, i.e. sail and power, the proper terms should be used and I suppose they should be used across the board to avoid confusion, as not everybody races sailboats. Regardless, you and I bump heads on occasion and have for a few years now without rancor so no problems here.

Alenjandro, ya might do a web search on PHRF or other ratings systems used in Mexico like IRC. I'm sure there's some sort of handicapping system available down there. Check with local yacht clubs too.
