280Re: Displacement for America Junior and Silver Heels
- Aug 9, 2004Does the article mention what the displacment is ?
The synopsis on the atkinboatplans web site says 1500 outside
lead ballast and another 600 lbs. of inside ballast compared to
America Junior's 1000 lbs outside ballast and 500 inside ballast.
If one or both of these is too heavy for me to trailer with my
own truck I'd like to know that before I start dreaming too much
about it. Also, the general rule is displacement guides overall
cost rather then length alone, so knowing the total displacement
is handy to know.
