towing weights

busy going through the process of getting a new trailer, and been to the weighbridge this morning -


humber destroyer 5.8 with yam 90 2stroke, single deluxe console, and 2 x twin jockeys, anchor/ chain/ 100litres of fuel / small aux. and the other bits and pieces of accumulated stuff, and including the trailer - total weight was spot on 1100kg - so probably looking at 800kg without the trailer - which is exactly what Sue at Humber estimated it would be!!

hope it helps others out there

Just slightly heavier than my 5.3 Ribcraft with a Suzuki 90 4 stroke plus fuel plus kit...correlates well

just going off topic for a change sorry!
How are the twin jockeys? Side by side I assume. Enough room for people's legs when all seats occupied? and ok to get thru between when nobody is on them. We have a single rear pod on the 6m destroyer and considering moving it and having a second one.
