There was no structural reinforcement on the hull,actually it was a very modest amount of changes done to the original 1970 boat.
If you click on the left side under the main page,beside the small hungarian flag,[tovabbi reszletek] go down on the list and click"Felujitasi terv" it is clearly visible that His enthusiasm weighted more than anything else.
Thumbs up for Him!
