Quite. Although Jigsaw had an a frame and an auxiliary, surely its slightly lighter engine but mainly its 50cm shorter length would have left it lighter? Will be very interesting when you stick yours on the WB especially with your larger (heavier ) console. Of course the lead weight on your transom won't help, but I would be very surprised if a "standard" 6.5 would be heavier. Remind me what your engine weighs again!? :P

Nice sig btw. Might take a while to think of a comeback

Our thoughts will be with you crossing the Channel next year when your weight "advantage" sends you skywards every 5 secs

Ahhhh..... but you forget. When crewed by her usual compliment Into the Red reaches well over the double ton mark
