# What is the maximum occupancy weight in a 16 foot fiberglass boat?

to calculate the recommended occupancy for any boat under 20ft:

length times width divided by 15

L x W / 15 = Maximum occupancy

### Suppose you have a 19 foot boat. What information will be shown on your boats capacity plate?

A boat's capacity plate contains several pieces of important information. First, it states the maximum passenger weight that can be carried in pounds. Second, it shows the maximum weight the boat can carry of any sort (people, boat accessories and gear). Third, it states the highest horsepower load the boat can have.

### What is the average weight of a 16 ft runabout boat?

My 16' fiberglass runabout (Larson Flyer 15' 11") is listed with a weight of 1080 lbs. The 110 HP outboard on it adds a listed 320 lbs to that. I always thought it to be heavier than the weight of a like aluminum runabout. In checking specs on line I find that all aluminum runabouts of this size that I could find listed had a weight of about 400 - 700 lbs more than the…

### How many people will a 20 ft pontoon boat hold?

This depends on the boat itself, length alone is not the determining factor. Every boat should have a specification plate on the right side of the transom (the rear board of the boat that the motor or sterndrive is attached to). This plate gives the model and serial number of the boat. It also included the maximum number of people or maximum weight of people and gear. It is important to respect the max weight…

### How do you calculate fiberglass boat weight?

It would be much easier to determine the weight of the water it displaces, if you are unable to place the boat on a scale. Place the boat in the water, mark the water line on the hull. Remove the boat from the water and measure the dimensions or volume of the hull below the water line. then multiply this dimension by the density of water, 62.4 lbs/ cu. ft. (or 1 Kg/dM). The result…

### What is the average weight of 16ft bass boat?

That would vary as there are many variables, most notably, what size outboard are you talking about. Also, is the boat fiberglass or aluminum? For a fiberglass bassboat, 16', with a 60 or 70 HP motor, you would be in the 2700 - 3100 lbs. range. This all depends on Mfgr. and year of the boat. As far as aluminum, it would be quite a bit lighter. How much, I'm not sure (even though my…

### How fast does a 50 hp outboard motor go?

Speed is dependant on a number of factors. Most importantly the size, type and weight of the boat that it is on and the number of people on board. A 50 HP outboard will push a small aluminum fishing boat a lot fast than it will a 20 ft fiberglass boat. I have a 50 HP 2 stroke that will push a 16 foot aluminum boat 35 MPH.

### How does lund boat co come up with the weight limt of the transum?

I am not sure of your question, but if you mean how do they know how strong the transom needs to be to hold an outboard engine, here is the general process. They know how big an engine they are going to put on the boat and how much the engine weighs. An engineer can then determine what the forces are on the transom. From that the engineer can calculate how thick the transom needs…

### What will make a boat hold weight?

How much weight a boat will hold depends on the volume of the boat. This is called displacement. displacement is exactly equal to the weight of the water the boat displaces, that is the boat makes a hole in the water. The volume of that hole times the weight of water (64 lbs for salt water, 62.4 for fresh water) - displacement. The volume of water displaces is equal to the volume of the boat.
