Default Help Needed for a 1991 16' Southern Skimmer

Hey Everyone,

I'm trying, and failing, to find any information about a 1991 Southern Skimmer my grandfather has. Specifically, I am trying to find out what the hull weight should be.

The boat looks similar to a Carolina Skiff, with two bench seats, and a full flounder deck (this picture is similar to the layout, although this is a picture of a Carolina Skiff J16: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MzM3WDYwMA==/z/CcQAAOSwBahVC3BL/$_1.JPG?set_id=880000500F).

Ultimately, I'm trying to verify that the boat, motor, and trailer will come in under 1000lbs. The motor is an older Mercury Marine 25hp two stroke, so I'm guessing that weighs maybe 125lbs, if that. The trailer is a simple two bunk trailer steel trailer (hollow tubes), so I'm guessing maybe 400-50lbs? This gives about 400-500lbs for the boat, which is my guess as to what the weight is, but I'm not sure.

I thought if anyone would know, it would be someone on here.

Cheers in advance!
