donradclife is on a distinguished road
Klondike (Beneteau First 456) is loaded for cruising, but the weight on the load cells on various travelifts has been 33,000 to 36,000 pounds versus a design weight of 26,000.

A few hundred pounds here and there for sails, anchors, chain, fuel, tools, books, paint, beer, dinghy, outboards, lines, food, clothes, souvenirs, absorbed water...it really adds up fast.
