I pull sled mostly but I just LOVE a stone boat pull occasionally. There is quite a lot of difference and it is more technical. In sled pulling you need to just keep the sled moving. In a stone boat pull, before you can keep it moving you have to get it started. On the final round of the weight class when most competitors cannot get a full pull, which is usually 10-20 feet, It takes very good technique to get it to start moving. It takes some clutch slipping and just the right amount of throttle and just the right amount of front end lift. The amount of draft you get from the boat varies a lot because the length of the chain varies a lot. I have seen any where from 4 to 12 feet. Most would say that momentum would not play a part because the speed is so slow. With my 960 I pull in second quite a bit. (Yeah, I know to Pretend Farmer that would be "Speed Pulling"). Last fall at one pull I read the track as telling me that momentum was going to decide it. I usually will use 2nd gear only in the first 2-3 rounds when the boat is lighter. I used it in each round in both the 3500 and 4000 lb classes, and won both classes, with 9 in the 3500 and 12 in the 4000, including 4 Super Cs in the 3500 and three in the 4000 lb. classes. I pulled 8500 in 3500 and 10,000 in the 4000. Give it a try some time you may like it! Another good thing about stoneboat pulling is that it is generally believed that extra power will only hurt you in stoneboat pulling, whereas it is generally believed that to win in stock sled pulling you have to cheat, so it tends to make people stop and think. Ford Power!!
