According to a sailing world article a few years back, they used lbs on the bow or rail you did not have to have, a C&C 115 saved 220 lbs on the rail to keep the same boat upright vs a alum/SS wire combo. That was one of the bigger boats used. Smaller ones like my 29' were in the 50-100 lbs range.

I drives me dinghy!
