Back in her slip and dry she's now floating about 3 " higher.
My recollection is it drops an inch for every 800lbs of added weight.
Full tanks alone would be a 1000.
Add 2 people, dingy&engine, tools, food, etc
Yea, I can see you +2400lbs, easy.

BTW; regarding keys, and speaking of draft, did you have any trouble with depths
or did you stay outside on the Hawk channel?
