    Default Boat weight

    I was surprised the other day and weighed my boat and trailer and all was only 4180lbs (empty gas tank)!

    Still too heavy to take off a sand bar without a come-along but lighter than I thought.

    How much does yours weigh?

    Default WOW

    I have a 2003 20' woolridge sport 2000 and thought it only weighed about 2500lbs with a full tank. I better check that!! I have the 150 merc opti on it, and soon a yamaha high thrust t8 or t10, just got to decide which one.

    You can pull it to the state weight scales and get it weighed. I disconnected mine from the truck, and then weighed it. I had to weigh my with the tank "empty". I hold 80 gals so loaded with gas.............

    With the recent rain did you remember to pull the plug? Seriously though, it is stated in my paperwork that my boat is only 1900ish. Its a 2004 19' Thunderjet w/ 175hp sportjet. I guess I have to question the weight now, of course they aren't accounting for the trailer and spare tire either. You might be surprised just how much that trailer weighs too. Makes me curious to know for sure. I might have to take it to the shop and weigh it with the crane now

    Plug is pulled and it is winterized. You bet the trailer is heavy as it is galvinized.

    Seems like you had posted a picture of that little tank before. I suspected it was overbuilt for its size then but holy cow 3/8" bottom in a 13' boat? I guess that explains the difference in weight.
