Default Seafair trailer weight?

Just got my registration for the trailer and didn't think of it before but it has unladen wt. as 400 lbs. Is whats on the reg card usually correct? sure seems light for its size? Its A 1990 Eagle trailer single axle, think originally for a 21 foot boat, at least thats what was told to me.
Was just figuring weight for towing

think the seafair is about 400#
the anchor mut be around 300
trailer 400? for ? 1100# so gas and gear say 400 ish // 1500lbs total not so bad for towing with smaller veh. Its probably much for my 99 subaru outback i just got as the miles are high and worry about trans failure towing that weight? yeah its a auto trans.

I dont even know if it could pull a boat up a ramp, then migt have one of those classic pics

Hey Bill I just read your post and I found this info on the seafair weight, it says it's closer to 1350#. So I think your towing closer to 2500 lbs fully loaded but I'm no expert.

Happy Boating!

Bill I just noticed that you have a couple of CD's, do you happen to have an original windshield that could be used as template? Or possibly one you want to sell. Finishing my CD and need to get going on the windshield. Windshield Guy (Brett) in Sacramento can duplicate an original with a template.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

On the you tube video you posted there is a Glasspar Seafair Sedan that is a real nice light green at 0:16 in the video. That is Robert grumpy bobby's old boat. Robert rebuilt it and did outstanding work on it and paid attention to detail. About five years ago he would cruise around with us in Alamitos Bay and we would all meet at OBR oldboatsrule beach for the day. Robert sold the boat around two years ago and got into building fast old cars. That picture was taken with our group and you can see the kids in the water. One thing to note is the GLASSPAR LOGO on each side window. We would get 10 to 12 classic boats to meet up at OBR BEACH.
At least the poster said he doesn't own the song or pictures.

thebiglazy, keep working on your nice Seafair Sedan and we would hope to see you at Shasta next year.

Im having computer issues to search but i'm pretty sure the weight of the seafair isnt much more than 400# . The Club Mariner is around 800 as I remember but theres much more to it. WONDER WHERE YOU SAw THAT 1350 NUMBER? , might be maximum weight fully loaded im thinking?

Jack i have only 1 windshield for 3 g3's and its staying put but if a tracing on heavy paper would help I might try and do that if I can get time, but doubt that would help. Thing is you wouldn't have the compound curves. There were guys making the g-3 cd windshield but know little about who and where. I want to make a few winshields but time isn't on my side.
