Sorry cant help you on the trailer weight, but I assume based on your username that your in Ohio? (I'm a pretty smart guy... :) )

What part of Ohio? Public or private lakes? We have a great event every year North of Columbus you should check out. (Links below) Good luck with your trailer!

haha not a very original handle, I was thinking about the boat and was not very creative when I signed up ! We live in Copley and generally boat at Salt Fork. I just bought a 2009 x14 last fall and our boating habits will change this year. I have the August event circled on my calendar.

Hey John, welcome to the site and congrats on the X14. Sweet boat!!

The lake we mainly use is Berlin. I am sure you may have heard issues with that lake but as long as the water is high, and you know that lake, your fine. We have a special spot there but if it gets too low then we head to Salt Fork. We also do family days at Salt Fork. We also venture to Portage Lakes for cruising and dinner.

Others on here swear by West Branch and do their skiing there. I have been on there a few times but do not know it.

If you ever want to check out Berlin just let me know. I met another TT member up there a few years ago to show him around, and let him know where NOT to go, or what to avoid. It worked out for him and he camped there a few times.

As for the username, at least you didn't make it your boat type so once you change your username is incorrect, like some on here. :D:D

DoubleD I feel your commentary on my screen name! I resemble that remark ...950lbs is my guess on the single axle trailer.

Ohio .... Nice to meet you, hope to see you on the water. If you see a PS214 out at Salt Fork, it may be us!

ohiojohn, go to the "knowledge center" at the top left on this forum.
go to owners manuals on the left.
funny, some years show trailer weight, some do not.
go to section for detail on each model boat.

I looked up 2005 single axle trailer for X7 is 860 pounds.
2005 single axle trailer for X9 is 900 pounds.
2005 single axle trailer for X10 is 900 pounds.
etc. etc.

You can go to any place that has a certified scale and get a weight slip if needed for registration. In my part of Texas we use a local fertilizer sales place to get weight slips for one ton trucks that have flatbeds to register the truck.

I think you can get blank weight slips from the license bureau. Other than truck scales at the pilot, TA, are there scales at copley feed to weigh your rig? Unload your boat, or subtract the boat weight from the gross weight. Or, just fill out the ticket yourself and punch out the appropriate numbers with a paper punch. It is a PITA to get our trailers registered in Ohio. I used to work the scale house at copley sand and gravel on summit rd but i think that is long gone. Ppl would come in all the time to get their trailer weighed. As a last resort you could e-mail mastercraft with your trailer vin and ask what the weight of the trailer is supposed to be. Then you will have it in writing from the manufacturer.

I thought the trailer title had the weight on it ...... I have registered a few boats in Ohio and never needed to get it weighed, since the title or some other document on delivery had that on it .... Do you have your trailer title ? Or like someone else said maybe the sales slip had the weight?

Not all states require a title for the trailer. Usually they come with a manufacturers certificate of origin. My trailer did not have one so I improvised. When I sold the boat I sent the trailer registration with it so there was a weight document that could be referenced.

OK, thanks, looks like I will have to do that.

The boat was originally titled in New Hampshire and they have the weight of the boat and trailer at 4100 pounds. Ohio just wants the trailer weight. I have contacted Mastercraft and looked thru the site and cannot find a document with the 2008 specs. Guess I will take it to a scale and see how that works.

Thanks for responding.

Thanks for the tips, I didnt think about Copley feed or Pilot. I didn't want to take it to the sand and gravel places because they are so muddy. I had an email from Mastercraft but they could not send me a pdf that the title bureau would accept. I'll try Copley Feed ot Pilot.

Thanks again

John

John, if you have not done anything yet, get hold of the fellas at Boat House Marine (330-325-1822) they are the Mastercraft dealer in our area. Speak with Chris or James. Explain your situation, ask them what they do if there is no trailer documentation.

I had this problem when I bought my last boat. I was going to take the boat off the trailer and drive the empty trailer back to the scale and get it weighed. However when I stopped into the local grain company (closest scale) the guy said basically "how much do you think it weighs" and I gave him the best estimate I was able to find online, he signed off on it, told me a few choice words about overbearing gov't officials and sent me on my way.

'worth a try to ask around, might save you some grief. It's a stupid requirement anyway.

And that's how to get it done. Understand?

Mastercraft emailed me the original document with the trailer weight. I took it to the BMV today and was able to get the trailer registered.
Thanks for all the suggestions.

Glad to hear of success. Problematic success, but success none the less. :rolleyes:
