Never overload your boat. The maximum weight capacity as listed on the certification plate includes all items added to the boat (persons and gear).
Also, proper distribution of weight is critical to boat and wake performance. Allocate the load as evenly as possible. These capacities include filled ballast bags, whether they are factory-installed, dealer-installed or added by the customer.
Note that adding ballast bags reduces the number of people and the amount of gear that can be added. Failure to adhere to the total maximum capacity may result in too much strain on the drive train or can sink the boat.
