hull weight question

Thread starter #1
In the pdf about drying out the boat, there is a reference to a table showing hull weight for different manufacturers. The specifications just say 130#. My boat is an '82 Alcort. How do I figure out what the dry weight should be?

If you look closely at that pdf you'll notice it came from the file library at Sunfish Sailors. Most hulls made after 1980 are rated at 130# in the spec sheets. Reality is these hulls are hand laid so there's variation of a few lbs. The videos from the LP openhouse tour show resin quantity looks more controlled currently.
