What's my boat weight

Postby mwood7800 » Tue Mar 21, 2017 7:53 pm

Putting in a lift. No idea what my boat weighs.
Anyone have an idea? 13.5 bandit hull. With polymer, stainless rigging full cage, one batt, no side lockers, 540 motor 3 seat. 22 gall tank.

motor...500#
hull......500#
rigging...400#
bs in boat..500#

so, i'm guessing u need AT BARE MINIMUM a lift that will hold up a 2000# rig. personally i'd double it for a safety factor.

me, I just drive my boat up into the yard. good luck!!!!

Thanks. I'm in salt water with a 8 ft sea wall. Going to make a 14ft wide solid platform I can walk on and get another boat on.
