26 people total is my personal best, in a 38 Top Gun twin step...
...at night
...on plane
...including a posse of models
...running around South Beach
...during the Miami Boat Show

THAT was a fun weekend! WHAT capacity plate? I also got pulled over once a day or so, for speeding.
I also got kicked out of the PBN party on Saturday night.

LMAO, I only play such on TV.

This was when I was designated driver for a certain TS TG during the MBS a few years ago which involved ferrying folks (including the models) between SoBe & Virginia Key.
I literally had the time of my life that weekend; met a TON of folks at the show and ferrying.

The sketchy part was driving a boat that wasn't mine, in Miami, in front of 50,000 other boaters at any given time, (+1500 cameras out) with boaters onboard; docking at the main docks for the boat show a few dozen times each day. I only had to abort for a second pass at the dock, one time due to getting washed sydwayz by a large water taxi.

Only carry as many as you can afford to cover lifetime expenses for when something goes wrong. You're the captain, it's your fault and you're getting sued by everyone!!

I remember an older checkmate I had said it's capacity was 11 people / ~1400lb max weight, but only had 7 seats, makes you wonder!

Our 45' Dolphin watch tour boats ( fiberglass cats) went from 52 person cap ,to 39 person cap in a 3 year span. Every time Coast Guard does COI, they use an upgraded national weight chart....🍕🥞🌮🍔🌭🥨
