What does the boat weigh..? and the cradle..? and the trailer...? =/< GVWR of trailer..

My boat weighs 6500# plus 600# for cradle and 1800# for trailer... GVWR of that trailer is 12,000# so it was a safe and secure ride...

Most car trailers have a 7,000# GVWR minus the 1,200# trailer and 500-600# cradle, means boat should weigh 5000# max...?
