I am about to buy one but don't want to blow my transmission because I have exceeded the 1000 lb weight limit for my car. It will have an older 50 hp Johnson w/galvanized steel trailer. From what I have seen on the net motor and trailer will come in at about 600 lbs. The car dealer thinks 200lbs over the weight max should not be a problem but I want to know, if possible, the real weight of the boat before I make any decisions. Hope someone knows or can point me to where I can find out. While I am at it, anyone know how to go about buying an appropriate aluminum trailer for under $400 without ending up in jail?

Looks like 450 lbs. Good to include weight of trailer ( look at trailer co website for that spec). Dont forget motor and fuel and battery and safety gear all f which are always being towed.
