This was true for us as well. (PNW). Haven't raced NFS, but we do have both the FS and NFS rating on the certificate. No idea about other locales.

In Nova Scotia we provide a racing and a non spinnaker handicap. The one provison is that you cannot use undeclared sails in any race. Here you must declare your largest headsail, your largest spinnaker and if main is oversized must declare that as well. Sailing with an undeclared spinnaker gives RC no idea if it os oversized, etc... so is not allowed.

Simple answer. Declare the spin and in most reas yo can opt to enter a cruising NFS class or a spin class - you would normally have a slower NFS rating.

If you must change you engine and the closest replacement available changes engine weight from 150 lbs to 250 lbs, how does that change your PHRF?

Option, the PHRF ratings are fairly simple.

Your certificate is based on a standard production boat. When you apply for a certificate you are supposed to let your local committee know about ALL custom or variant equipment on the boat. And when you change equipment, you are supposed to notify the committee again, and ask for a re-rating.

They may change your rating based on the added weight, or they may dimiss it as negligible. They may decide your boat is faster because if has more "ballast", or they may decide you are slower because the boat is heavier. Or they may tell you to keep racing for another season and they'll adjust it after they see what difference it makes.

You may want to see what difference the engine makes and then say something about it, when you notify the committee.

If someone were to inspect your boat and find the equipment materially differed from what was on your certificate, you could be DSQ'd from a race, or a season.

Talk to your local PHRF official. They can probably give you an idea of the change over the phone before you reapply for a new cert.

I would report the change, but most likely there
will be no rating adjustment. PHRF committees are
quick to give a penalty for any modification that may
make the boat faster, but rarely give a 'credit' for
something that may make it slower.
I converted from an inboard to an outboard motor
and recieved a -6 sec/mi adjustment.

There is a link to the US Sailings list of phrf ratings for boat, high, low and ave for ALL ussailing reporting clubs etc. So the list may not be accurate per say for your region, but will get you close if there are a few boats like you want rated.
