The largest category in the American Power Boat Association is Stock Outboard. Originally created to the pure driving skills of the racer, Stock Outboard Racing is designed for those who may not have the mechanical background needed to do the modifications needed in other categories. With speeds approaching and sometimes passing 100MPH even with limited modifications allowed to the engine, this group of boats is a great category for anyone who just wants to get on the water and go fast. This is one of the most affordable categories in the APBA with used equipment and starter kits available at a reasonable cost.
