If a 41 Apache was duplicated inch by inch where the same structural strength was obtained , by using todays modern fabrication methods and materials what would the weight difference be?

That is the beauty of the material ,the repair is stronger .

The Kuwaiti's brought a guys boat, a huge ugly thing that ate a concrete seawall somewhere destroying the stem and smashing everything back into the saloon we cut the damage away and cleaned it up and ground the edges into a nice 24:1 Scarf,
I took my carpenters and built a mica faced mold on the outside I made some changes in the profile for the better and the molders have at it.

Bear in mind I dormed my crew on site so, I would get the night shift going and when I came in the next morning it was like the Elves had worked all night..

Took a week and we were Microning the bottom and spraying the new sides done.Inside and out.

Sir they have a weight Break that has to be followed in that class I think 10,400 Pounds, and that boat would run just fine at that weight.

Neat stuff here you can see the bow flair coming into play, Pantera did a nice job on the boat.
