Default Weighed my truck boat and trailer today

Ok I weighed the truck, boat (97 twine engine 29 Fever) and trailer today with the boat fully loaded and fueled up (155 gals of fuel). I have twin 502s with B&M blowers and XR drives. Here are the numbers:

2010 Ram 2500 4x4 Crew Cab Cummins (w/half tank of gas)- 7780 lbs

Trailer (McClain 34' Alum double axle) weighs in at 1000lbs

Truck Boat and trailer - 10500 lbs

So my 97 29 twin engine Fever fully loaded (all anchors, bumpers, coast guard kit, etc) and fueled up weighs 9500 lbs with no one in it.

Well, by those numbers "Truck Boat and trailer - 10500 lbs"
your boat weighs in at 1,720 lbs..... NO Wonder these Fountains FLY

Seriously those numbers sound bought right... had a 35 Lightning and she weighed in at about 9000 dry.

Yep it was a typo Truck Boat Trailer should have been 18280

Boat and trailer are 10500
