I hate to give Smack any more work but maybe you could try running this race like College Football. Now you would have total power you could place people in Div. 1,2,3,4.... then when they send in there reports you could say weather they beat a certian boat or not in the same conditions. At then end of the season you could Invite us to a " Bowl Boat Race " . Examples Chessy Bowl, Down Under Bowl, Lake Bowl...... The best part will be when monthly " Smack Ratings " Come out. Everyone will be able to arguee the ratings all month.
Dude, that sounds like the BCS. No way!
My ultimate goal is to start an international incident between two full-keelers.
