    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
