displacememt figures.

Here is for RapidFire.. the trim options do make the boat vary by some four lbs.

4" wl 320#
3" wl 210#
2" wl 130#

You can see that 90 lbs only sinks the boat from 2 inches into the water to three inches into the water. Two layups of the same boat are not ninety lbs different.

Heck do we buy a new boat after a big dinner?
