Wet Weight of a 2002 Hurricane FD 228 RE

I'm trying to estimate the weight of this boat with a 150hp Yamaha Vmax motor with a tandem axle Roadmaster trailer with surge brakes. I'm guessing around 3600-3800lbs wet. I know I just need to take it to a truck stop and weigh it but wanted to see if anyone here knows about what weight I'm looking at. Reason I'm asking is that I'm thinking about getting Dodge Durango and I want a V6 as this will be a daily driver but I know the V8 is the better choice.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Here is the dry weight of the boat itself.

    Now, if you factor in approx 400lbs for your engine, couple hundred pounds for gear, couple hundred for your fuel plus your trailer, I think you're estimate is pretty accurate.

    The V6 Durango shouldn't have a problem with this as I believe the newer (since 2013 Durango) has a 6,200lb tow capacity
