Re: how to weigh a boat
Go to a truck weigh station or a scrapyard, with your trailer. Weigh it, with or without your tow vehicle.
Go home, come back with the boat on the trailer. Weigh again and subject the trailer weight. Remember to adjust for any gas you've used, about 7-1/2# per gallon.
Or find a boatyard with a crane or travellift that has a scale in it, many do. Slingboat, hoist, read scale.
