Re: WR18 ready for launch

You know, those are two things I do not know right now. We do not have a bathroom scale and I have not had it out on the water yet. I suspect it is heavier than 45 lbs because of the rubrail and a new builder's less-than-economical use of epoxy. On the bright side, using 4 oz on the interior should have saved me some weight. I am going to borrow a scale from somebody and I will let you know. There are others out there who have actually paddled their WR18s and could tell you about carving turns. I am no expert kayaker so my initial thoughts will be of the yes, it floats, or no, it sank, variety.
