Wick & Ted -- Thanks for providing an answer to my question.

Currently the plans that I have started to look at for a possible winter build call for:
* Keel (bottom of hull to top of bulb) = 19.69 inches
* Beam = 6.06 inches
* Displacement = 8.77 lbs.
* Construction weight is estimated to be = 2.76 lbs.

Thus it looks like all I need to consider is the aluminum mast and the OD sails when I get to that point. If I can shave off any weight in construction, it doesn't look like there will be any issues in meeting the minimum weight if radio gear, batteries and servos are included in the weight. Also a "patch deck" would be possible if the expected weight comes in as predicted. I can still work with a wood or carbon mast for the "A" rig for "regular" competition.

Thanks guys. Dick
