Thanks for the chart, Kevin!

Yes, the one I saw was a 1979 Minuet 7.3 that had already been deeply modified, even to the point of a new (not repaired) frame. They had also done a new floor in marine grade ply. The owner had removed a lot of stuff he deemed useless added weight, such as the magazine rack, made of 3/4" panels, as an example.

It had the acrylic in the kitchen window, and it had crazed to the point where a curtain was hardly necessary. Wondering if I can replace it with glass.

Well, thanks again, that chart is interesting and clearly shows the weight gain tha AS TTs had over the years.
