  One swallow doesn't make a summer

As a retailer, the last new Valley boat we got was the Etain 17-7. This weighed 29.5kg (65lbs) with hatches when checked in the store.

I wouldn't believe for one second the 23kg (50lbs) weight advertised for standard layups (even bearing in mind this figure does not include the hatches).

P&H, Tiderace and NDK tend to be much more realistic with weights.
