When talking about inside fillets lately, I have seen numerous suugestions about how much or little to use to save weight. How much weight are we talking here, going from a 42 pound 'yak to a 40 pounder? Someone was even talking about not putting in screws in the deck beams to save weight, come on now, 4 screws going to hold ya back or sink ya? Don't know about the rest of you all, but I would rather have full fillets for the strength factor and get rid of the extra pounds off my lard butt if I am concerned about being a weight weenie. Leave the boat strong and pack better!
