I have taken then weight of the trailer from Dixon Bates website.

http://www.dixonbate.co.uk/powerboat...?PartNo=300805

I guess they are talking about the trailer weight as opposed to its carrying capacity. I will give them a call to find out.

2000KG is the maximum braked trailer weight for my car so I am right on the limit. Feels fine on the road however.

Yip - 1100KG is capacity - see http://www.dixonbate.co.uk/Powerboat...al+%2F+Leisure)

My r2b49 weighs 350KG so I would guestimate 450 - 500KG for that trailer! Gareth at Dixon bate will be able to tell you in seconds :-)

So am I to assume I was supplied by Osprey/DixonBate with an inadequate trailer for the job??

The only way to tell is to put it on the scales

All I can say is what mine came in at, I used the weighbridge at the local steel tube mill and have all of the print outs etc

I agree it seems alot of kg's when the dry weight is 480kg on the website

I think you'll find that the dry weight is just the hull. I guess the tubes and know for a fact that console and seats aren't included in the weight. So if thats the case and for me the console and seat bases will add at least 150kg's and with a full tank of fuel (200lt's is about 160kg's), add the engine at 200 kg's, you've get a 1000kg's without any steering, seat cusions or stainless, net alone the batteries, 2 stroke oil and the other 100 items needed to run the boat including the anchor and chain. It all adds up!

It all adds up to how much, Hightower?




Or, haven't you had the chance to visit the weighbridge yet?
