Just a guess here.

the 197 probably weights in around 2600 lbs. Trailer probably weighs at least 500 lbs 10% (recommended tongue weight) of 3000 lbs is 300 lbs.

I'd guess around 300 lbs.

Website says the 197 weighs 2800 lbs and the trailer weighs 860, so if it really is 10% of total then it'd be around 360

I can squat 350 without too much trouble but can't budge mine. Granted its awkward weight but I'm guessing all of 350. Did have a friend weigh tongue weight of his 214 single axle and health came up with 335...but different boat and can't assume same fulcrum pt for that trailer either
