A Weighty Question about the DC Festival

A question came up in the boat yesterday regarding the DC Festival, and whether those boats are heavier than ours. According to the DC Festival's web site, the dragon boats are 1,500 pounds. Anybody know how much the TRRA boats weigh?

I'm just impressed by the fact that the DC boats are color coded on the inside -- so paddlers can tell which boat they're in without leaning out to look!

Both Carolyn N. and Judy L. let me know that our boats are around 400-500 pounds. Thanks ladies!

As Judy pointed out, Wednesday night's tire workout should give us an idea of what a heavier boat will feel like...
