How many people in a boat

This is a stupid question. My boat says 8 people or 2000 pounds. Does that mean i can have 10 people in boat if i don't go over the 2000 pounds?

I think technically 8 is your limit, probably based on safe seating. And they can't be all 300 pounders- based on not sinking Having said that, I know I'm not alone in exceeding the number limit on my boat with a bunch of kids.
But I'm sure that would be grounds for a ticket if stopped. More importantly, use reason to insure safety.

Thank you.

I have 4 adults, 3 kids and 2 infants. I should be okay.

Do this, it will tell how many people you can have on board. Length of boat multiply by beam divide by15 answer is allowable persons.

Your boat gave you the answer. 8 people OR 2000 lbs. Maybe they should relable those stickers to read....Up to 8 people, max. 2000 lbs. Obviously safety for everyone is the issue. But we all fudge those factors now and again.

Boats trip - do you understand the risk if too heavy (for the conditions)?
