Have you weighed it at all yet? I saw you were planning on ~600# hull weight. That seems like a lot for a bare hull. My hull is roughly the same size and 95% of the metal is in place and I couldn't imagine it weighs more than 450# tops.
I haven't weighed it. I'm just going off the specs Nathan gave me. It has a lot of decks and hatches which will increase the weight.

is all that oil canning on the gunnels going to lay flat?
Yes I'll be able to fix it pretty easily. I just need to unscrew the top plate and rescrew it, which I had to do anyway to change the type of screws. It's all spec'd out in the plans. It was my mistake. Everywhere that it's oil canning is a spot where I undid the screws to enable it to lay flat on the wooden frame. I should have made the frame and screws on the top plate fit together, and I wouldn't have this minor problem.
