Bare hull? On a trailer? With/without engine? Steering fitted?

I think they will go on a roofrack - so probably no more than 75kg for hull and tubes?

Thanks!

Thanks for the info - I have bought a Force 3 with a sailing kit. It would appear not to have a bow dodger/steering gear. To collect it I was going to deflate the tubes and put it on an estate roof bars/rack. I see that from reading some of the past threads that the Force 3 GT is rated up to 30 HP and the basic Force 3 is rated to 15 HP - is this correct, and if so what is the difference that makes a larger engine possible on the GT?

Once again, many thanks for all your help.

The GT is a much bigger boat..

What bits are you after? There's quite a few websites out there that will sell the majority of spares you need.
