    Re: Boat weight (GNOVA)

    I'm thinking my 1998 LS205 hydra sport hull wt is around 1300-- 1350 I think I read in the manual ,My 225 HO Johnson wts something like 575lbs
    For a total of around give or take 50 lds or so of 1900lbs.

    I know there was some changes between 96-98 but I can tell you the hull on a 96 LS205 weighed in at 1525lbs.

    The weight I posted came straight from the 1996 catalog. I know between 96-98 they went from wood to all composite hulls, so not sure how much weight change there is between the two.

    The 1998 205 has wood in it. It's encapsulated in resin. That's what it shows in my manual. I think the 196 has no wood.

    Re: (GNOVA)

    Yes I was thinking of the 196, my oops. So then most likely then the weight I posted should be about right.
