Sorry to disagree
It's okay - it doesn't make you a bad person.

The reason I had mentioned it was that there was a thread on the CS owner's group a little while ago about designed vs actual weight. People were noting that their boats all seemed a bit heavier than their designed weight. So, when we hauled for the winter we asked for the weight of the boat on the lift. We found that we're about 1600 pounds over what the boat's spec weight is, according to the Travelift at our marina. We have a fairly light disp. 30 footer.

Granted, this is a big difference from the OP's weight difference of 10K, but it may be a contributing factor.
