Can you get it on a scale, maybe it's some kind of light lay-up? I'd be curious to see what it weighs.

BTW, what's a short box? Do you mean short bed? I can pull my boat with my 2500 burban but not up hill and stopping is fun.

The lightest boat was the one with the cargo area empty, no fuel and a few weigh saving bullet holes on the sides!

I think it is lighter because its on a 10000lbs (approx) lift and if you hit the side with your fist it wobbles just6 a hair and desnt have the thick sound like the other apaches we work on do.

Could be... I'm on a 12K lift and if the boat is full of fuel it doesn't want to lift the boat sometimes.

How big are the tanks? We picked it up by water and about 50mph we hit some 6ft rollers and they were jothing for that boat. (yes the mohican waves)
