  1. It's literally 10 tons of weight.
  2. At least they didn't show it in the pictures for their ad.
  3. According to what I could find, highest recorded at Kenai River Mouth 25.6 lowest -5.9 so maybe not so much. Homer was slightly less range.
  4. Until you sand right through to the screw heads.
  5. Did you try more tension on the leech line?
  6. I got kicked off a frozen lake by a NPS Ranger because "boats" weren't allowed.
  7. If that amount of growth puts boats on the rocks there would be a lot more boats on the rocks.
  8. Learned that the hard way decades ago racing Tech Dinghys on the Charles. Guy came up from astern on the run and ran dead on into our stern. I told him to "Do your circles." He didn't, I protested. Jury found there was contact, no hail of "Protest" both boats out.
  9. How a boat floats depends on how much water it's hull displaces. You could have no sealed internal compartments or the whole boat could be one big sealed compartment and it won't make any difference. To the water outside the hull the only thing that matters is how much the boat weighs. In fact if you fill the boat with foam flotation it will float a little lower than the empty boat since the foam weighs a little bit. It'd be very hard to sink though.
  10. What do you mean by, built in flotation? Anything inside the hull will not make it float higher, unless you swamped it and are full of water. Then it would help.
  11. Foam pipe insulation helps with that.
  12. I have a 1020 up in AK. Great boat but the cockpit is very non ergonomic when going to windward for long periods. Looks like the 1220 fixed that issue.
  13. The max speed of 22 feet per minute will be a problem if you have to go very far at all.
