The boat in the pictures looks more like a MacGregor 25. I owned one and I sure wouldn't let 10 people on board. With the keel up it is very tender and if the keel safety bolt wasn't in it will retract into the trunk if the boat goes over.
Minnewaska is right we really don't need anymore government regs! Have you ever seen them do anything without it ending up a fubar.
