I know rules say boat must be 16 foot minimum length, I have a champion with a yamaha 115 that is titled 15"8, would they cut that slack or do I need to upgrade boats?

pretty sure that is the sweet 16, I wouldn't worry about it.

Boats must be 16โ€™ in length to be eligible for use in THSBA tournaments. Sorry, we wonโ€™t cut any slack on that rule (or any other rules for that matter).

Mean 16' will take rough water than many longer boats, typical THSBA bureaucratic think while they ignore other safety issues, wow.
