PSC actual Displacements / Drafts

I have a PSC 34 and I'm curious what its actual weight is. The Travellift our marina uses does not have a scale though, so I'd be interested in hearing if other owners knew the actual weight of their own PSC 34s. If you've had your PSC 34's weight measured, can you please post its weight along with how it was loaded at the time (e.g., half water / fuel, moderate stores)?

While we're at it, please feel free to post measured weights for any of the PSCs, in case of general interest.

On a related matter, the advertised draft of the PSC 34 with full keel is 4'10", however from measuring the height of the scum line while on the hard, my actual draft appears to be almost 5'6" (moderately loaded). I'd also be interested in hearing about actual drafts for any of the PSC models.
