GB 32 Actual Weight...26,000 Pounds???
Has anybody actually weighed their Grand Banks 32?
The specs on my 1990 Grand Banks 32 say its displacement is 17,000 pounds. When I had it hauled out for a bottom job last week the Travel Lift guy said it weighs 26,000 pounds! Even with full fuel and water tanks, 200 ft of chain in the bow, and a lazarette full of misc. stuff, I can't imagine that the added weight comes to more than 3 or 4,000 pounds. I'm assuming the Travel Lift meter is very inaccurate, but does anybody have any real data here?
Why does it matter? Prop guys says it doesn't make any difference, but I might want to go up a size or two on a new anchor (which of course is not a bad idea anyway)
Thanks in advance for your help on this.
