Weight of boat
The weights are listed on the RL sight under '24' but naturally modifications and repairs over the years will have changed the original specs. I have been told my '24' has a couple of extra 'lay ups' around the board area and some extra strengthening through the whole keel area some. I guess the versatillity of the craft has led to many adaptations. Welcome back!

Weight
Thanks Peter Nearest weigh bridge to me is 400ks away.I'm not real happy with the present trailer for what I intend to do(travel around Aust)so I'm looking at building a purpose built one.No trailer builders up here either.Why did you go to to a dual axle? Dave

Trailers
Dave,I went to a tandem trailer because i was very close to max weight trailer, feel safer with dual wheels ,have nearly lost 2 wheels,nuts done up to tight plus corrosion on studs even though they donot touch water,broken studs both times.I am hoping to do longer trips in the years to come only sail close to adelaide at moment.Sorry took so long to reply.peter
