Re: Weights: Fact or Fict

I appreciate what you say. Actually this boat was built by my father who has considerable experience with building boats: 18-ft sailboat, 27-foot sailboat restoration, 44-ft powerboat/home, and several small boats for rowing. I'll say that he hasn't been overly concerned with weight but he is an excellent craftsman. Also, the kit is the kit. It comes complete except for the finish paint. So, one would think that the published weight of 26 pounds includes all the stuff from the kit, with or without some allowance for the finish paint that is not mentioned.
