Pretty sure that they no longer do engrave the Hull Weights.Also not sure they are at the point where the weight tolerance is that close.Last N.A. At FWB, I seen the weight of new boats vary from 313 lbs to 328lbs.
A 15lbs weight range is rather surprising.
If I were to get a new boat I'd prefer to be just a couple of lbs under weight, so that when I add a few things I would still be at 320lbs. This would allow for double grommeting the tramp, adding adjustable trap wires, side-rail neoprene, etc.
In the end I do believe weight matters a lot on these boats, that's part of the "one-design" aspect. I race against boats with crews at (probably below) the class min of 285lbs, where we weigh around 300lbs. So, to also have a boat that is 328 lbs out of the box would be a further detriment.
If they stopped engraving the hulls with the weight, is there any other assurance of getting a boat out of the box that weighs at/or below minimum? When they are shipped, do they weigh the boxes, something? $10,000+ is a lot for a new boat and not be sure it is overweight........
