    She is about 30 kg empty, but in the water she dispces about 150kg. She is 9' 2" long and makes around 3-4 knots submerged.

    CB90,
    I use a garden cart to launch and retrieve her. She is much to heavy to try to lift out of the water. I drive a Toyota mini van which I measured for her to fit into. One inch shy of the windshield and one inch to the rear hatch. It works.....

    I really like running her when people come up to me and ask what it is. I tell them it is my Stealth model....scary but a lot of people believe it.

    I am Jealous, good idea with the garden cart, and what a lovely lake and weather.
    Most of my larger boats are around 50in and because my back is damaged I struggle to transport them, I have made a trolley too assist me.
    Many thanks for enlightening my curiosity.
    added some pic off the net.
    Regards Roy
