Howdy folks. Doing a project for a class.
I was wondering what I could expect a 14 foot fiberglass boat with aluminum prow deck and seats, and a remote steering system that's been prepped for a day on the water to weigh. I was hoping that everyone here would be able to get me a fairly close estimate, within 25lbs if possible?
The boat would be a '56-57 Herter's Mk III Runabout, claimed weight from the manufacturer was 210lbs, shipping weight was 265lbs
6 gallons of gas + tank would be 6.75lbs ? One gallon of gas is 6.22lbs, six gallons and associated would be 40lbs
'55 25HP Evinrude is (I believe) 85lbs ? EDIT: 118lbs + 9lbs electric start + battery and wiring (15-30lbs for an ATV/Motorcycle battery) -
Small anchor and rope, 16 lbs or so.
Things like tools and lifejackets would ride in the bed of the truck, so don't need to be accounted for.
