Ribcraft may have bare boat data. You'll probably have to do the maths for all the extra kit inc engine, seating, console, electronics, fuel, personal kit etc etc.

What's your concern?

Also would do no harm to pm Hadd on here as he has the same rib and will be able to compare some info with you.

mine is about 700kg (without motor and trailer of course), isn't it too much?

Tip that's right I have a 585. 700kgs is way to heavy something wrong somewhere. If you just bought it why don't you ask previous owner.

Is this an estimate, a guess or have you weighed it and done some maths?.

My RC5.3, Suzuki DF90, trailer, A frame, seating and console, electronics, safety stuff, fuel, anchor and chain, personal stuff etc etc etc is over 1000kgs.

mine, with a 300kg trailer is 1100 kg, with mariner 75 2 stroke= 140 kg (to be replaced with a yamaha 115 2 stroke), with 60 liters of fuel,
so it's 600-650 kg, not 700 kg as i said before.
