Gezy'
If you can get to a truck scale over there, it would be well worth it.
Our Max says 4900lbs dry with standard engine. I ran it over the scales with full gas tank and loaded with our average gear onboard = 6100lbs :shock: after deducting the trailer weight.
Hell 80gals of gas = 640lbs of added weight.
Good new was it gave me an excuse to buy a new truck

Hey Gezy, as we have the same boat, numbers should be same. Mine 'books' at 4700lbs dry. Gas at 63 gallons, 504 lbs (I have yet to completely fill it, worry about expansion and spillage), add 200-300 lbs of 'stuff', should be around 5500 lbs total weight. Long weekend? Don't forget to add the weight of a couple coolers and donuts.

I have access to truck scales and plan to get more accurate numbers. My current vehicle is right at the legal tow limits with these figures. It tows great but would hate to get caught by the authorities with an overloaded rig ($$ fine).

More to come. How is the perfomance on your new prop? I'm running a 15x15 (not cupped) aluminum stocker and like the low end perfromance and 40 top end is livable.

Have some fish n chips for me,
Dave
