Went to the CAT scales and weighed my VLX on the trailer, it was right at 5900lbs. In addition to the stock features, here is what was in it:
Stereo pack 2
Factory 12” sub and amp
Factory 2-battery setup
35 gallons of gas
3 Johnson ballast pumps plus 3 extra fat sacs (empty of course)
Small box anchor
Small tool kit
No tower speakers (temporarily removed)
So full of gas/gear and ready for a day on the water this is easily over a 6000lb rig.
To calculate the dry weight of just the boat I subtract the following items from my 5900lb scale weight:
Standard Boatmate tandem trailer: 1200lbs
Harpoon amp: 25lbs
Second battery: 35lbs
Tool kit: 20lbs
Sub + amp: 100lbs
Extra ballast parts: 40lbs
That puts the dry weight of my boat right at 4250lbs. It looks like the factory published weight of 3700lbs is way off.
