poly, yes that is indeed what i was suggesting.

i have amended my post to add %...thanks.

The weights i found via google-

Outboard 56kg
Boat bare- 80kg ( i find this hard to believe but the plate on the transom will confirm )
Trailer- 135kg
A.N.0- 40kg
Total- 311kg

7.5% = 23kg.

round numbers here i'd shoot for 25-30kg and be done with it as the boat is bound to be heavier than the printed numbers.

please note, the above is based on recommended small trailer weight towing in accordance with the caravan club, which google also gave me. I have never towed anything this light but the theory is sound and i'd be happy to start there.

good luck!

cheers

Easy answer. Is don't worry about it. That boat isn't heavy enough to do anything.

What other people talking about is if you have say a 2 tonnes boat.

Your boat is no more than 100kgs.

I have a 5.4 Searider and have it balanced can lift with 2 figures. With a Mazda 6 wouldn't know behind,

The above does not apply to 2 tonne boats, it is specifically for up to 500kg just for the record.

Balanced and lift with 2 fingers can't be used in the same sentence surely? Unless it was a couple of certain fingers that said feek the balance.....let's go! ☺

Cheers
