    Read a few times on this website about this being the last year for open cockpits for the inboard "flat" classes. That (APBA) will require capsules on all "flat" classes (K, PS, and SS) next year. Wondering too, since it's APBA being involved, if the SE class will be required to have a capsule...

    Hey guys, potentially dumb question but I was trying to explain different boat types to the wife and realized that I didn't know the answer to this: why are all the circle boats true flats (well, plus strakes) rather than runner bottoms? Is it a rules issue- APBA says no runners- or is it a...
