For what it's worth, if anyone is interested, I finally got my new hulls from Jim Sohn, the new hulls weighed in at almost exactly 100# each.

got my old ones (04's) sold, and the new ones beamed up.

The rudder castings required a bit of filing to fit the new style gudgeons.

They put some neoprene at the front and back of the top of the daggerboard trunk that needed to be removed and replaced with something that didn't cause the boards to stick when raising and lowering.

Next step will be to get the tramp on and tight.

Can't wait to get them on the water

Anyone else had their new hulls on the water yet ?

Stephen
