i have always heard around 500# never weighed mine.

that oil pan got to weigh 50# or more. if a man would make a aluminum dry sump for it he could shave some weight. don't know if it's worth the trouble.

my 12x7 boat floats fine. it's a open hull design.

now my 12' deckover with the 540 on it is another story. lol

I picked up one of Wayne Cone's aluminum oil pans that looks like a small air foil.

Is there any other items on a 220 besides the oil pan to cut weight?

I am thinking of making every bracket on it out of aluminum.
