bshambrook is on a distinguished road
I am looking at a 1986 Frers F3. The owner tells me that typically there is a square "window" cut out of the center of the keel that is back-filled with lighter wood or even foam. This apparently removes about 700 lbs of weight. Does anyone know if this is correct and does it in anyway compromise the structural strength of the boat?
