How do I determine the maximum safe capacity for my GB 36 Classic? The name plate says 8 but if I use the standard POB per sq ft I get at least 12 (higher in the US). I want to take people out on a one hour cruise in fine weather and will have a life jacket for each passenger.
Thanks, very helpful. Just don't understand why the GB plaque would say maximum 8. I'm guessing that would be for worst case sea state. I'm just planning on taking prople out close to shore in fine weather.
