What does your Montauk 170 really weigh?

I'm curious as to total weight being towed: boat, motor, trailer, fuel, gear, provisions, et al. How much is your tow vehicle really pulling? I may have mine weighed, just for the info. I'm pulling my rig with an F-150 Lightning, so I'm probably good to 6,000 lbs or so. I'm far below that with my '04 Montauk, Keravan trailer, spare tire, 115 Merc 4s, trolling motor, 3 batteries, Pate tank with 25 gallons or so of fuel, and all the related gear, ice, adult beverages, bait, etc., etc., etc.
Has anyone had their load on the scales?

I'm waiting to see a reply too... Good question!

I have not weighed my Montauk but I estimate that it would weight around 3000 pounds.

In the above post, it's stated that AQUANUT's rig weighed 2,250 lbs on a certified scale. I stll haven't had mine weighed; maybe today. Anybody else actually weigh theirs? So far, only Aquanut has actually been to the scales. Estimates are one thing, but I am curious about actual, measured-on-certified-scale weights. No particular reason to go to the scales...just curiosity.
