He's just trying To point out a gray area, that in the rules it doesn't Clarify exactly what type of flippers. Back when those rules were made obviously everyone was well aware of what kind of flippers the rule was Referring to! When that rule was voted on - there was no Hobie Mirage drive to think about, that's why the rule has no specific clarification because everybody obviously knew what flippers Meant. Becoming a new member I can see where the confusion or misdirection could take place. Is it human powered yes, does it have a mechanical drive system? Yes! Personally I really don't care if you fish , But this does need to be voted on and if it passed I'm sure electric trolling motors would pass with it!! It's a big thing to think about as far as everybody rearranging boats to fit everything, who would be able to get trolling motors first etc. etc. weight issues ?capacity? I know a lot of peoples boats can't handle that much weight !trolling motor with a battery would add at least 75 lbs. Don't take this personally but I would definitely vote no on the issue. I like the fact that everybody has to row or kick underwater & That the good sticks obviously standout tournament to tournament year after year. If it was up to me belly boats wouldnt be allowed either only kick boats! And obviously change it to sckbbc. This would greatly avoid further confusion or debates, And every boat would be equal - it would be up to the angler to show his or her skills
Sorry I had to chime in again just my opion.
