Ten thousand pounds does seem excessive vs a design of 28,000. What is a bit troublesome is that I would think that highway truck scales are required to be fairly accurate, certainly better than 30%(!)...

It seems that anytime someone "weighs" a cruising boat it comes out heavy - e.g. travel lift numbers never seem to match expectations.
