Someone mentioned earlier in the thread that the design waterline is drawn assuming a certain amount of additional load (crew + basic stores). I think your first 1000 lbs brought onboard might sink you to the design waterline.
The design displacement
is 5300 lbs total. Any chance you could get a nearby boatyard to hoist her in the slings and get a weight? Then at least you would have a baseline to work from.
