23Ft Hourston fully loaded #7500 lbs on the trailer hooked to the truck.
23' glasply with 4bt cummins and a 15hp prokicker with 20 gallon fuel tank, all tanks full 5500lb without trailer
19.5 fibreglass Lund with 140 hp OMC and 9.9 Merc 4 stroke, 150L of fuel, 2 batteries, downriggers, cannon balls and lots of rods and tackle. Sitting on a single axle Shoreliner trailer comes in at 1285 kg/2830 lb on the highway scale. Add some tongue weight and it's still sub-3000 lb.
24 foot Skagit Orca ....dry weight = 5,000 lbs......with Suzuki DF300 + Honda BF15 = 5,775 lbs; with 1,050 liters of gas = 6,825 lbs ; With full suite of marine electronics, gear, booze, dog, salt ice, spare propellers, and granola for camping =. 7,777 lbs without trailer
1984 Hourston 23 on a dual-axle Highliner trailer - 7700 lbs loaded for fishing [more if cruising] - on Pat Bay scales near Victoria. Almost disappears behind a Dodge 2500 with Cummins.
According to the manuals I have for each item;
Glastron GS160 - 1050lbs
Evinrude 115 - 306lbs
EZ Loader - 350lbs
=1756 dry weight without any gear.
According to there website the 17ft runabout is 1000lb, older one like yours I would guess might be a bit heavier but somewhere in that range. So with your engines and gear I would say you would be well under 3000lb
