According to Dolphin my 16' Kevlar SS weighs 500# and has a useful load of 900# http://www.dolphinboats.com/superskiff_pro16.php I had the boat, motor and trailer weighed Saturday and received a DMV certified weight of 1720#. The way they weighed it is missing about 100# of tongue weight. After deducting the weights of the trailer, engine, batteries, fuel, trolling motor, tabs, platforms, jack plate, and hydraulic steering I come up with a weight of 600# for the boat and console. Since 600# just happens to be the weight of the non-Kevlar version this leaves me wondering if the published dry weight included the console? Then the next problem is useful load of 900#. My estimates for engine, batteries, fuel, trolling motor, tabs, platforms, jack plate, and hydraulic steering add up to 660#. Throw in another 100# for the console and my wife would have to go fishing by herself in order to stay under the 900# useful load limit. Whoever comes up with those "useful load" numbers must not eat or drink too much.
