I didn't think of that, great info there. Makes complete sense. I sanded both floats last night and there only off by 1/4 ounce. I think I will try to get them the same weight, but one will be heavier since I'm using one rudder, which will go on the right side. Thanks Sherman
Hope to be priming and painting them this weekend, weather permitting.
