The above Safe Loading Capacities are computed in accordance with 33CFR183.35 and 33CFR183.39 for boats rated for more than 2HP and with 33CFR183.37 and 33CFR183.43 for boats rated for 2HP or less – the Safe Powering Capacities are computed in accordance with 33CFR183.53.

It should be specifically noted that these precise computed capacity specifications apply ONLY to pure rowing versions of all boats of this type. These capacities should only be used as general not exact recommendations for SAILING versions because all good sailboats have a daggerboard or centerboard which is absent in rowing versions of the same craft; the presence of a daggerboard or centerboard trunk can affect the boat’s capacity. Therefore the United States Coast Guard (USCG) recognizes that because there are infinite variations in daggerboard or centerboard styles, one formula can NOT be applied to all designs and have valid real-world results.  The regulations cited above specifically EXCEPTs sailboats from complying with Safe Loading and Safe Powering regulations.  Furthermore, Sections F, G, and H these regulations EXCEPT sailboats from the requirements to have flotation installed.

Please Contact Us if you have any questions about how this relates to your intended use of any of our (or any similar) small sailing craft.
