There’s a lot to discuss here. Suffice it to say that the Penel Orca fabric in unrelated to any of the several CSM fabrics used by Riken.

I do not know the weight or base denier of the Avon fabric, but by all accounts it was high quality, and plenty durable, certainly on par with any current proprietary CSM offerings.

I think the weight differences of particular boats boils down to design and where/how much armoring there is.

For me, boat base weight isn’t really a consideration for me. Choosing one Hypalon boat vs another would never come down to a weight difference of even 20lbs. I’d be choosing a boat based on design and features long before weight becomes a factor.
