thanks for the replies - much appreciated - perhaps i wasnt totally clear, i am reasonably familiar with the advantages of epoxy hulls/lead keels (and disadvantages of carbon fiber spars), however, i'm looking for any disadvantages of these (apart from, as i mentioned, cost), in anyone's opininions.

i was not aware of the issue of thermal distortion and dark colours, though - interesting - how does that work? if this is true, why do so many tartans have dark hull colours?
