270TE DRY WEIGHT?

Postby NIGHTIDES » Thu Oct 09, 2014 9:18 pm

Prior to 2008, the dry weight of the 27TE hull alone was 4,300lbs.

Thereafter and to date, the hull weight has been shown to be w/ the engines at 6,600lbs.
Figuring each motor to come in at 600lbs/ or 1,200lb for the two; leaves a 1,100lb difference of extra unexplained weight.
If these numbers are correct, just where did this extra weight get put..??

Back then the dry weight was base boat with no power or options I believe the hardtop was an option. Now all boats are with max HP and typical options
Also now every boat that leaves is weighed as its loaded with all cushions,props,coast gaurd gear ,etc so our weights are pretty accurate

Thank you.

So the hull weight has not really changed over the years. It now just represents the typical true 'hull plus options' weight out the door so to speak.
