Hi gents,

I am a commercial fisherman in NC. I bought a 1970 34' Webbers Cove this spring. It's got a CAT 3208 Nat. No speed demon, but does the job.

Does anyone have any idea what this thing weighs?

My 35 Duffy weighed about 14,000 lbs per the boatyard's travel-lift scale. It was a pretty basic charter boat.

I would guuess your's probably weighs in the 12,000 to 14,000 range as well. As I recall, a 3208N weighs about 2100lbs with the gear.

Those were build like brick out houses. Still part of the cross over from wood to glass period. The theory was the more the better . There came to be a saying that you could build 2 boats now from what they use to use then to build one boat. Those were important steps to bring us to what downeast boats are today. You have a real classic there and was state of the art for that stage of progress. It probably weighs alot for a small 34fter. Any professionaly build boat of compairable size wouldn't weight anywhere near that much now.
