<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Below&nbsp; I am&nbsp; tacking on quotes from 
e-mail on the SJ23 E-mail Archive page. These contain references to the weight. 
Hope this helps. I will look&nbsp;in Bob Schimmel's Techtips page to see if 
there is a weight given anywhere.&nbsp;</FONT><FONT face=Arial size=2>It would 
save me time to know which SJ23 webpages you have looked on for it. These two 
quotes are under "Trailer Remodel Experiences-Betsy Schultz..."</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>I assume you are cocerned about trailering a San 
Juan 23 or am I wrong about that?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>I will copy this to the majordomo lst and maybe 
someone else can help you. I assume you have subscribed to our majordomo list or 
else they wopn't be able to answer you.</FONT></DIV>

<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>"....</FONT>&nbsp;<FONT face=Arial size=2>2 years 
ago I converted our trailer to a tandem axle vs. the single it originally was. I 
did this for several reasons, I've never felt comfortable towing with just two 
tires under the boat, a high speed blow out could easily result in very 
catastrophic accident. We noticed with two tires they got rather warm even hot 
on long hauls! This was with highest rated (hard to find &amp; $$$$) tires. 7.00 
- 15 LT load range D Cooper 6 ply tread, 4 ply sidewall Max load single 2040 lb. 
@ 60 psi. Our San Juan 23, Low Overhead &amp; single axle trailer weighed in at 
4375 lb. with very little gear in the boat. The tires where overloaded by 300 
plus pd. The trailer seemed to fish tail &amp; just generally wandered a lot. 
The tandem axle cured all these 
problems."<BR>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxEnd quote</DIV></FONT>

<P>".....We would like to share our trailer remodel experiences.<BR>The Fleet 
Cap'n came as a single axle and by the time we got it had 16" 8 ply 
tires.<BR>These were the maximum load range for this size but got very hot on 
hauling.<BR>When we went to a truck weigh station we discovered we were much 
heavier than expected, around 4500 lbs. without water or 
fuel..."<BR>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxEnd quote</P></FONT></DIV>
