Reply To: Hull corrector weight discussion
Whilst I don,t dissagree that OK,s can be built with less weight, there are still alot of competative boats out there that would not be able to be trimmed down to 70Kgs ( I own two of them ). GBR2108 ( 2yrs old ) is 70.75Kgs without its correctors in , and GBR1984 weighs in at 72Kgs without correctors.
Besides, following the shambles made by OKDIA of the carbon mast weight, they would probably increase the weight to minimum 75Kgs. I would rather see the mast weight reduced by 2Kgs as this is more of a plug and play modification than trying to reduce hull weight.
