Catalina 27 weight / displacement

How much should a Catalina 27, standard rig, weigh?

I hauled my boat this week and the travellift recorded it as 9000 pounds. I thought it should be around 6750 pounds, It's a standard rig (34' mast), and it has an Atomic 4 inboard. It's a 1976 model, and I'm concerned that the hull absorbs water over the summer.

Has anyone weighed one of these and how much did it come out to? Did you use a crane and a load cell, or what other method?
