Check your trailer rego papers, that’ll give you a rough idea . I’m guessing maybe 1800 kg ?

 i had a 23 ft fraser running 350 chev and a 180 ltr tank , it came in at aprox 2500. so im guessing similar . i would be going something to suit 3000 plus to be on the safe side. better to go high than low

just remember your trailer

just remember your trailer weight needs to be included - so a boat that big you are going need one with break away brakes - you sure your tank is only 150 litre ? sounds a bit skinny for a 23 foot boat?

 The boat has a trailer that is to small for it and rusty and yes it does only hold 150lt of fuel which pisses me off as have to carry 80lt in jerry cans every time we go to the islands

Thanks for all the help Merry Xmas to all Wayne
