Boat weights?

Why are the boat weights not given under the "Specifications" section for the different model boats on www.mastercraft.com.
Here is a example, http://www.mastercraft.com/index.php...&boat=xstar.08

Can I suggest that the respective boat weights be added for those wanting to know.

Was talking to my dealer about that today as their brochure didn't list weights either. Someone suggested that the boat companies don't want you to realize that you'll need a new tow vehicle.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That's probably the case, especially with the new huge hulls out there

I see that now, I guess I'm just spoiled by 1 Stop Shopping, thinking all the specs. would be in one place, rather than spread all over hell and 1/2 of Georgia!
Thanks Hammer for the heads up!
