Weight limits, Maximum Capacity
So I got to thinking about something today. No big deal, I don't know of anyone who's gotten in trouble for it or anything, but still it puzzled me and thought I'd toss it out there...
My 2009 LSV states the capacity on the boat is good for 13 passengers or 1800 lbs including gear, all those goodies.
Why is the maximum operational capacity set to 1800 lbs of "total persons, gear, ballasts" on these boats when they easily handle over 2400lbs in ballast plus people? Technically I over-weigh my boat every single weekend we go out and wakeboard/surf and I don't even have to be on it!
I understand these boats are WAY under-rated, but could you technically get in any kind of trouble for it?
Just curious! ...not that this means I'm going to not be filling my ballasts or anything... :cool:
