You may want to entertain a Phillips hull. Iam not very educated on fiberglass but from what I've seen on here they are very light. I think he uses some kind of infusion method.

10-4 That's to bad because Iam sure he could build a nasty ride/hunt boat.

I know who has the original lazer and I'm pretty sure they don't build them for just anybody.

4 cyc hulls I seen that I like but all form different reasons.

Paul Jackson
Ricochet Hulls
Marty Brays can get matching fiberglass rake
Jimmy White

I hate to say it but one of the funnest boat I have driven is Crazy Frog's Scorpion with a 125, Paul Jackson did the rigging and cage.
His hull with a 360 would be an insane little boat

Just my 2 cents

I cant begin to tell you how nice Jimmy White hulls are he cares about his work I absolutely love the new hull I had him make price was great. Product was done right I am VERY picky when buying. I searched all around and it was an easy decision in the end 100% satisfied.
