The capacities listed are simply our recommendation for optimum loading, maximum capacity will be higher, in most cases much higher.

The pounds per inch immersion PPI will give you an idea of the effect of loading on each boat. Using The Massasauga 12 as an example that boat will settle one inch [25mm] deeper in the water if the boat has 72 pounds [33kg.] added to its load.
