Well the title says it all realy! Anybody know, bareboat no rigging?
Thanks, Alan
 
???

Nobody have an idea even!
 
Jonny could probably find out, but since we're all about to disappear off to Miami for a week, I hope you're not in a hurry..........:D
 
It all depends on the lay-up specified at the time of the build.
But as a general guide 380Kg is a ball-park figure.

Matt: no, not in a hurry. I was more surprised that nobody here knew.

Wayne: ball-park is plenty good enough, thanks :cheers:

They are a little lighter than I thought they'd be!

Thanks dudes

That's more than a (Baker built) P21
 
im sure clive said mine weighed less than 300 kg, mine has a balsa core .
 
Roofer, is that with or without interior, seats, pannels etc. No rigging?

That is damn light!

Yeah, when I get back from the States I'll check, but I would think definitely sub 300 Kilos.
A stock P21 is not much over 300 Kilos, and it's quite a bit bigger than a P18 all round.

Steve sent me some numbers recently, and a std P21, fully rigged with a V6 Yamaha 225, upholstery, tank, battery etc, completely turnkey, was 730 Kilos

Dude if you fitted a car battery instead it would be a whole sh*t load lighter. :D
 
hydro thats fully rigged less engine and fuel tank, theres no floor or panels in my boat .
 
Hydro, I spoke with Clive before I replied, he gave me the 380 figure, maybe he ment 280 dunno. It was dinner time & I could hear Corri St in his background! Maybe he's a fan, I hope not!
Just out of intrest (or maybe not) I previously had a P16 which weighed in at 550Kg, that's fully fitted out & ready to go with 2ltr Merc PLUS trailor!
 
Hydro, just had another word with CJ.
He said "The 18 probably does weigh more than a Baker Built P21, but lightness is not always the way to go".
He can build them light, he can build them strong, the build materials denotes the price.
There was a case, three or four years ago in an OCR race at Southend where an 18 missed a turn and went straight through a fishing boat that was at anchor 20M offshore.
Needless to say the fishing boat was turned into matchwood, the P18 sustained a few scratches.
I'll ask CJ what the build of that one was & get back to you.

That was a 19 with Min all up weight of 600kg a good bare boat would be around 300kg
 
That 19 is a lightweight build, It is still going strong now it has been repaired properly unlike the complete mess that was made of the original repairs.
