No guessing allowed. Take it to a scale and Know not guess the weight.

Every boat that I have weighed was over the guess by at least 300 pounds.

Drop the bucks and report the actual weight.

Had an 07 CRV and it worked hard, without a trailer to get to highway speed.

I fully intend to take the boat to a scale to have it weighed. And I know what you mean that we tend to underestimate the total weight with all the "stuff" we load in. But at this point since I have not bought a boat yet I am using manufacturers specs for the weight of the boat, motor, and trailer, then adding in items like battery, anchors, full fuel tank, gear etc. I'm trying to estimate on the high side. Doing all that I estimate about 1000 pounds total.

x10 on Fishin Dan's comments about the use of a transmission cooler.

Always a good idea to have a cooler on the transmission.

and carry the batteries and anchor in your car. Then your boat won't weigh so much !! ( of course I am kidding )
