Becouse there was no wind at the lake again. So I used my time to get some weight data from my Assassin!
In front of telling the truth I need to say that my Assassin got some special strengthening on the hull to increase the hull near the centerboard! This I ordered becouse my Assassin will be a testsailing boat and I will avoid dents from knee what I hope will succeed with this modulation!
I weigh the boat on a bathroom scales which is digital and I hope near by thruth weight! The oll over weight (complete boat with everything on it to have a go) was 31,5 kg! This is not the most competitive weight as imagined but if you take off 1,5 kg for strenghing the hull you are in a good and competitive weight!
The Assassin has many new ideas as rotating must stump, or the cool stuff like watherproove box in the back of the hull ... , which all needs to use more material. The foils are bigger and stronger made as the BR`s so also a reason for more weight!
So concidering all of this the boat weight is very good!
The foils are about (not measured yet) 25cm longer as BR`s and quite a distance thinner! My BR Main-Foil (with one extra layer of clear painting) is about 2kg which is quite a big different! But I think my BR Foil is on of the best BR-Foils ever made! (Rohan wanted to buy it back from my at worlds in waymouth) Now it is not fitting to the Assassin and I will sell it to an interessted BR sailer!The ruder-Foil looks so cool! And I think it is working well, but need to prove in strong wind conditions! I have no compare to others - so here just the weight.
Becouse of weather forecast (fog, rain and no wind) I put my boat on the trailer and made it ready to go somewhere where the weather is nice! I try to get some holydays but at latest I go sailing in a silvester holyday!
