Default How much on average does a 12-14' aluminum row boat weigh?

I want to buy a boat for my mother so she can use to row on Little Bay de Noc, or at least the perimeters . Anyways, i already have a 14' row boat up there. I am looking at 8' plastic dinghys that way 61lbs. I need something that is lighter weight that she can carry around (since she's not getting any younger). In comparison how much do the aluminum boats typically weigh? Thanks again.

p.s. not trying to flood the forum with ?'s but thanks

Years back, I owned a 12 foot Sea Nymph aluminum v-hull, model 12K, which was their liteweight model. I believe it weighed around 100 to 110 lbs..
Here's a link to Bass Pro Shops boats. You'll see that even their lite boats are pretty heavy. From 145 lbs. to 255 lbs., depending on the model.

You might consider a canoe in the same dimensions... They have about half the material, so maybe half the weight???
Or a plastic Kayak... I would think they are in the 30-40lb range... BLU would have the answers for that...
