I noticed that on later models the swamped capacity of the 15 hull went to 1800 lbs. from 1350 lbs. What was changed?

As far as I know, the 15-foot hull has not changed since its introduction in 1976.

According to the information I used to prepare the 15-foot REFERENCE section, the initial swamped capacity was 1,650 pounds. This was later increased to 1,800 pounds.

Where was a capacity of 1,350 pounds cited?

As for the change, perhaps the technique of measuring the swamped capacity changed.

My mistake, 1650 is right. An increase of 150 lbs would equate to over 2 cu, ft difference in hull volume. Just a guess using the specific gravity of 10 to 12 lbs per cubic foot. Must have been the method of measurands.
