In Texas there are no rules regarding the max load of a boat and number of passengers a boat can carry? Specially paid passengers?
No problem PCP...it wouldn't make sense to me either except I've seen it work for years. I think we have to remember this boat is set up for a single purpose. It only carries enough water for the toilet. It carries enough battery power to start the outboards and power the running lights and sound system. Fuel capacity is enough to run two 25hp Honda outboards. The boat is made of wood and aluminum. See the draft in the following pictures empty and full. There isn't a lot of difference.
