Weight versus Dry Weight

Weight I assume is a Coast Guard thing. So it could be fully outfitted & sliding off the trailer.

I would have to ask why you have a weight restriction on boats based on the year model? Weight is weight, what does the year have to do with it?
Boats built after 2004 are allowed if they are AWSA tournament approved, slalom towboats, 21 feet or shorter and 2,800 pounds or less "Dry Weight".
newer boats are allowed to be heaver.
My question is why does it matter if all are AWSA tow boats?

My personal hope is that the OP is trying to get the Echelon approved, not banned. I'm not saying this is the case, but I've seen situations where HOAs try to keep older boats off the lake even though the rules don't state years of manufacture.
Hopefully it all works out for everyone involved.

The OP has in his profile listed his own boat as a 2000 Response LX... So if the Response LX is allowed, there can be no reason why the Echelon can't be ...
Good catch. The OP's boat is 100 pounds over the weight limit just as the Echelon is. What a predicament....
