If you can build strippers, you certainly can build a composite hull that rivals those production boats. And at a fraction of the cost. Last winter I built a carbon copy of my stripped Kite (14'6" and kinda beamy) that came in at a disappointing 29 lbs, 4 lbs over my expectations and calculations. My next composite will surely be lighter.

WRT your question of Spitfire vs Swift 13.6, I'm no help at all.
When you build your new lighter one, I'd be happy to take that heavy, bulky, 29 lb monstrosity off your hands.
