Interesting that Atkin never mentioned the displacement on this boat. I only have it because I ran the offsets through CAD, and that came out to be 5200Lbs. She floats a little high, so might be less than that. It has about 1500 Lbs in the lead ballast. I have attached a text file with a short history with the info on repairs and adds. It is easier to show you the hoist system than tell you, and I have many more photos of all aspects of the boat, but it is in my OneDrive, and I don't want to post that link here. Call the phone number above to give me your email and I'll send the link to more photos.
