I wouldn't put too much stock in what the travel lift gives you for your boat wieght.

The rated disp for a C27 is around the figure you quoted (6240 is the number, I think), but that's the brochure number for a empty boat. With all the gear aboard, full tanks, perhaps some absorption over time, it's going to be above that, Unlikley to be up to 9000 lbs though.
