Hallo all,

I just bought a Skicraft 15, and need to do quite a bit on it. It feels quite heavy to me, and I am wondering if the foam maybe got waterlogged?
Will have to drill a hole or two and check. Can anyone please share a buoyancy certificate, so that I can see how the buoyancy was laid out?

I will also be having some adventures with the two 30hp Mariners on the back, one step at a time though.

Based in Richards Bay, I will post some pics after the first clean-up and renaming is done.

Post a photo of your boat. 15ft Skicraft in RCB ... I have my doubts.
The 15ft Skicraft was/is mostly used in the Cape waters. There is still a few moulds lying in some of the builders workshops.

Contact Atlantic Suzuki. They will be able to provide you with the hull weight on that boat. Super helpful blokes as well.
