Ferro-Cement Hull

Just took possession of a hartley rorc32 hull complete with ferro deck and coach roof, it weighs about 6.6 tons, and i am trying to find out what the weight should be.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would have guessed 8 tonnes working displacement, so I'd have been be a fair bit over (unless you're talking bare hull weight only). But if it's 6.6, that's so much better. Enjoy it!

Tomd hi and welcome to CF

This is a rather nice RORC 32, you could send them an e mail and ask as they have likely lifted out so the crane driver will have given them the weight.

S/Y Crystal: Hartley 32 Ferro Cement Sloop
