Don't forget the weight of the trailer when calculating total weight.

Some marina's have scales on their travel lifts - the only way to get an accurate weight is to weigh it as it.

David Gerr (author) has some excellent rules of thumb that have a lot of charts and pictures and formula's - if all you need is a estimate add 1/3 when you think the boat is basically empty.
