How much does she weigh?

I'm building a trailer for my project boat and have no idea what she weighs.
Boat was built in 1962 by Schroeder boat works, Glen Cove, NY. Might have been a one-off job or finishing a kit boat hull. Center cockpit ketch with a canoe stern. Length overall 36', waterline 31', beam 10.5, draft 4.5.
Solid fiberglass hull 5/8 thick below waterline with a full keel that appears to be encapsulated concrete. Boat was built with a Palmer gas engine but has been repowered with a 3 cyliinder Volvo
The hull is marked #501512, Net 8 tons, but the builders notes call it 7.5 tons gross and 6.5 net. Anybody have an idea what highway weight I might have? Thanks in advance.

Re: How much does she weigh?

Don't ask her directly, you will hurt her feelings, and for god's sake if she asks "does this transom make me look fat" tell her she has the prettiest transom in the world and leave it at that.

Some things are better left unknown... A girl should have a bit of mystery ; -)
