Should I post in the launched forum?
Or just post the pictures, review and thoughts here?

Wonderful job.

Based on comments about other HC14 builds, the heavy duty construction probably adds to the stability you're seeing.

Beautiful! I agree, especially if Landon is taking her out by himself, the extra weight will be a plus for stability.

90lbs.

Will need to do some thinking and analysis on that extra 35lbs before starting the fs17.........
Just for interest, Narfi, my HC12 tips the scales at 60.5lb. (don't know what it's supposed to be though as the weights on the website and drawings all contradict)

Looking at your brilliant photos though, I'm surprised how much bigger your 14 looks. It's a much more substantial little ship.

Interesting.....
Based off of the study plans which give the most elaborate weight breakdown....
HC12 from 6mm Okoume = 40lbs
HC14 from 6mm Okoume = 55lbs

You built the HC12 from 5mm and came up exactly 150% of designed weight
I built the HC14 from 6mm and came up roughly 164% of designed weight

I know I was extremely resin heavy on the inside because of my issues with the woven cloth, and before I got the gun figured out had some puddles of primer in the bottom as well.... It seems like we are actually fairly close to each other in terms of % weight over expected, so perhaps I didn't do as poorly as I thought?

I think all the weights given are for "Hull only, not including fairing and paint" so I don't suppose either of us did too bad considering we added bits. My foam decks although they felt like they weighed nothing, were a couple of lb each.

Mine doesn't feel too heavy though, I can easily pick it up and pop it on my shoulders (I weighed it on a set of bathroom scales that way)

Been out of pocket but congratulations on the launch :!: Boat looks great and I am sure both of you are going to enjoy it a lot.
