Lake Michigan has two for 2014, a regular and shoal draft keel. Some PHRF areas will give you credit for that roller main, most will not. Michigan does not, but gived credit for props and roller jibs.

Our 37 is rated 153 by PHRF of the Chesapeake. We have a shoal draft, fixed prop and RF main. The breakdown is 132 base rating, +6 for fractional rig (even though they all are), +6 for RF headsail, and +9 for the prop. In our first 6 races it seems to me like the boat could sail to its rating in winds over 11 or so, but it's tough to keep up under 7 (most evening races around here). Good luck.

Thanks Jackdaw and David. Doing the Race for Independence regatta on the Rappahannock in October so will submit 144 since I have a folding prop. Though I do have a bow thruster hole which adds drag: do either of you know if points are added for that? I agree David, that she ain't no light air boat without the gennaker but does really well 10+.

We also have a thruster, but we don't get any adjustment for it. Even though it seems like it should make a difference, there was nowhere to specify that on the application form and I can't remember ever seeing it as a possible adjustment.
