Only the McCarthy's know for sure, but I believe the hull alone is around 2000lbs.

"Spoiled Banana" is balsa cored so Jeb tells me it is 900lbs lighter, so that would make it 1100lbs.

A single 200hp outboard weighs around 400-425lbs.

I shipped my original bolsters when I replaced them and they weighed 50lbs.

Back seat at 25lbs.

Fuel tank.....50lbs?

So I would guess your rig weighs around 2600lbs or so.

Add 800lbs for an aluminum trailer and your at 3400lbs total.

Very light for a 24' boat...

That's about right - 2200-2300 lbs. unrigged
