Figure around a buck a pound for a forty plus year old trawler.

Sorry, didn't notice the question before. The 2020 Powerboat Guide says 17,000 lbs.

Of course, the best number is just what the slings say when you haul out, just make sure to accurately note your fuel and water levels and major stores.

Unfortunately the only published weight for a lot of boats is a questionably accurate dry weight figure.

What does your boat tip the scales at?

Thanks
Just as an FYI, I have an MT 36 and mine is 13 Tons (26K Lbs)
