The Nova, on the other hand, was a great boat; roomier - easier to load and unload (36” beam vs SR’s 34” beam) and definitely a more solid build (Kevlar/spectra layup & ash trim).


curious why you feel it's a more solid build? in what way? and are you referring to this aramid lite when you say kevlar/spectra?

the SR pros16 is truly gorgeous.


The NC, if I recall, weighed 56 lbs. (bathroom scale) with the skid plates I added. The SR was 39 lbs. (before I refinished with two coats of epoxy). Kevlar/Spectra was a layup that Nova Craft offered when I purchased the boat. I don’t see it listed on their website now. The hull of the NC was more ridged than my SR. Perhaps substantial is a better word than solid.
