GV15 weight

I "need" a smallish bay boat to replace a 16' tinny that currently resides on a two-pole side lift with a 2000 lb. capacity. I really like the look and performance of Will's (wegcagle) GV15 put I don't see any mention of the total weight. The Bateau build notes list a 500 lb. hull weight — does that...
