Default Towing an intrepid 339 or 289 - weight?

Decided one of these will be the next boat, but have to make sure I have an adequate tow vehicle. Hoping 339 and 289 owners can chime in with the actual weight of these boats when loaded on a trailer.

Thank you

I just bought a 2000 Intrepid 289 walk around w/twin 225's, had a tandem trailer built for it to minimize the weight, and had it weighed on the certified scales in Hialeah. Boat with trailer weighed 8,900 lbs with 1/2 tank of fuel (~95 gallons).

289 will be a heavy load but in spec on a well-equipped half ton, (except to the THTers who think you should never tow more than half your rating, and need a 3/4 ton truck for a bay boat).. The 339 is going to need a 3/4 ton for sure.
