Did't DHD weigh his 5.8 Vipermax a while back? Fully loaded it came in at 1500kg if I remember correctly. If this trailer has a GTW of 1300kg, it explain a few things.

There are some very strange Vipermax weight figures around, and although I am not doubting their legitimacy, we got 1800kg exactly on a single axle 1800kg rated axle which came out at a 1300kg weight (100 litres fuel, empty otherwise) for the boat.

The concrete has a fall up towards the camera so more pressure is on the side shown in the picture.

I have access to a weighbridge so I will weigh it once set up.

Roy estimated the weight of my 5.8 for shipping documents to be about 1500kg inc the trailer (which was an 1800kg rated trailer).

Fall = technical name for a slope!

The wheel nearest the camera is therefore under more load that the right hand side one.

You are definitely over egging your estimation on weight. This boat has a 90ltr tank and a 90hp 2 stroke outboard, hardly heavy!

Are you saying the 'uphill' wheel has a heavier loading than the 'downhill' one?



BTW, the wheel nearer the camera is on the right hand side......
