I'll bet he didn't either. Aronow made boats to last. Old Cigs and Magnums are heavy.

Maybe m.m. and Lucy's 41 Apache might be the one of the lightest.

The 80's KV Scarabs were very light layups. The deck bows when you walk on it!

Didnt Craig Barie build one that was so light it bounced all over?? I seem to remeber that story, was fast when it was smooth but no weight to go through the bigguns...maybe he will post...

Yes, very light. If you lit a match under the deck in the daytime, you could see it from the outside.
