Default Specs for 98 2300SR

I have a '98 2300SR with 7.4 Mercruiser Bravo 3, and I was looking for specs like the total dry weight of the boat with engine so I can size a lift for it in a slip at the marina. The simple manual I got from US Marine way back doesn't specify it with a particular engine. Any help?

I have seen it listed with the 300hp 7.4L engine as 4,508lbs.

Thanks for that, I saw it too, they said it was the weight with the standard engine, but I think standard means 5.7 liter (small block V8) not the 7.4 liter. So it must be heavier. I can always add for the weight of a full gas tank. but the dry weight with 7.4 engine would be helpful.

I'm not sure what engine options there were for 1998. But I have seen a 2000 2300SR with the 5.7 and alpha 1 drive listed at 4,188lbs.
