Just weighted the hull.

currently at 35 kgs that includes:

  • Hull
  • Floor glued and laminated in
  • 1 side tank
  • Bulkheads
  • bowsprit structure
  • transom bar
  • Gantry
  • Carbon blocks for fittings (almost 0.5 kg)
The class minimum weight is 51kgs including control lines and bowsprit.

So i figure 5 kg more in glue and fibreglass, 3-4 kg more in fairing compound and primer allowing 7 kg for fittings, bolts, ropes and foot loops.

So at this stage its looking like i should be able to fetch the minimum weight with not too much hassle unless the hull requires a lot more filler than first thought or paint.
