Okay, I'm on a mission...I've gathered almost all the data on all past MR340's to answer many of the questions people as here on finishes, divisions, boats, etc....the only thing I'm missing is the boat types used. 

So everyone who has ever attempted the MR340, DNF, or Finish please respond here (or PM me) with the year(s) you did the race, and the boat you used. 

Once I've gotten it all gathered I will post the results for all to see/reference.  I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised! 

Yes, I am crazy and have to much time on my hands, but damn its neat to see like this!!   Grin  Grin Cheesy Cheesy

Ah, a kindred number-crunching soul.  I am not alone out there!!!.   Smiley

I'll PM you what lists I have.  I found that the only way to list boat type to name and boat number was to go through the professional pictures posted in the forums and look for hull numbers.

Okay everyone, here is a small sample of the total history of the MR340 and what I've been working on. I'm still trying to figure out a place to post it "live" so it can be easily updated (Google Docs for spreadsheets is jacking up some of my pivots and chart). In short, there is a tab that shows the breakdown of each year’s race (except 2007 I am still trying to find those results-so those are not in the totals right now).

Here are a few things you will see: Records list (Adding in the Dead Last Legion for the very last boat to cross the finish line each year), historical river levels (I simply took the four day average of each gauge during the races for each year), The Historical race dates, Rosters, and Dispatches.  Total boats competing by Division, Completion Status by Division, Breakdown of total Finishes, DNS, and DNF by paddler, and by state, the Most Top 10 Overall finishes, Most Top 10 Division finishes,  counts for DNFs by Checkpoint each year, and the Sub Club hour (<40, 50-60, 60-70, 70-80, 80-88, and 88+) finishes each year.  Zoom in so you can see the samples better.

Since the boat type used is still a work in progress….I was hoping that by sharing what I’ve pulled together so far that more people will help “fill in the blanks” on the boats they’ve used each year.  Hope everyone enjoys this Nerd Sample of data as much as I have in putting it all together.
