Looking for my boat's weight
2/11/14 @ 9:45 PM
I picked up a 15' 1978 Hy-Ryder tri-hull with a 50hp Johnson a while back. I can't tow it with my current vehicle due to some transmission problems. But this spring I'm buying a new vehicle. I need to know the weight of the boat and trailer so I can get a vehicle capable of towing it. Anyone have any idea how much a boat + trailer like this would weigh?

The winch on my trailer crapped out on me and I need to replace it. Any estimates on what a '78 18' aluminum Starcraft with an 85 horse Johnson would weigh? Or anyone know of a site where that info is available?
Thanks for any info!

I have a 19 foot fiberglass with a 150 hp outboard, and the combined weight of my boat, trailer, motor, and gear is right around 3,000 pounds.
I'm guessing a 15 foot fiberglass boat, motor, trailer, and gear would be right around 2,000.

bajakirch, If you have a feed mill or somewhere that weighs trucks, even the dot weigh station, they will usually weigh it for you. May charge a bit but would be better than guessing. Call around and get somebody to tow it there for you. SM
