Sorry to interrupt, but I never heard of this...I agree a difference of one drum of resin (that's 200 liters), may happen, but I believe that even the most careless builder controls resin wastage and usage...

Also if that was the case, they woud have problems fiiting internals, and would notice it in the water tank tests...

I am not saying its not possible, but never heard of this, not to the point of having such a great weight differnce...200Kg I believe, not more...

As to the different sailing characteristics...well from the guy driving to sail trim to rig name it...

Sorry to disagree
