He's been talking about buying that boat for months! of course, talk, as we know, is cheap.

Personally, I think he was scared.

He can still buy it, but the price has gone up.

90hp Yam 2 stroke comes in at a shade under 120kg.

Is that any use?

Still need to know the approx weight of the 19' Frode. I'm thinking it could be similar to a Phantom or Ring, perhaps a bit more or a bit less? Could anybody tell me the approx weight of a 18' Phantom Hull (Hull only no fuel ) likewise a Ring, might give me some idea. De Graaff are going to make me a new trailer next week but not knowing the approx weight is causing a problem!

'IF' it was run previously in 3B would it not be a tad over 595kgs or were there not minimum weights back then ? .... i am assuming that you need to know whether you need brakes on it (the trailer) ie: under 750 ?

Spot on, that was the issue.....is the total rig under 750KG, going by Jons figs + motor etc and even allowing for it to be considerably heavier it should be ok for a 750 KG trailer.
