Yeah it's not Clarified to the exact little detail, but This is only my first year so don't quote me but I think this rule was made before the Hobie Mirage drive was around?? Maybe club vote ? Let the officers decide?? The fastest I can row with slack wind would be about 2.8-3.5 mph . I can maintain this with no breaks for 1 hour straight- example - from yorty launch I can row all the way to the very back of cherry, past the camp spots to where the water gets very skinny. I haven't tried a hobie mirage drive, but I know those things JAM!! That hobie Definitely has an advantage over the kick boats, But then again the kick boats have an advantage over the belly boats. (Faster) The gear ratio is 1-1 but what about thrust? The mirage drive Definitely has a huge advantage ! For my kick boat to keep up with your hobie I would probably have to put at least a 45 thrust electric trolling motor. Don't quote me on this but I think every 25 pounds of electric thrust is approximately equivalent to 1 horse ? I heard that somewhere- I will tell you what- I could definitely use a hobie for the Berryessa tournament!!!
