    Question

    I'm shopping for a trailer for a 29' 1929 Richardson (Renaissance) which I'm restoring. Anyone know how much this boat weights or what size trailer I need?

    TIA.

    I had a 30' Blanchard power cruiser (1932), similar design. The guy who moved it for me put it at about 6,000 lbs when very dry, using scales on his trailer. A starting point?

    I would have guessed a bit heavier, maybe about 4 tons.- but that is just a guess

    A belated thanks. This boat will have its engine removed and has been on the hard for at least 30 years and under cover for 20.

    And,....? after that?
    A nice little boat built with simple traditional carvel construction. Would make a nice simple rebuild project, not full of complicated systems.

    It looks like I found her on the RBOA site.
