Default Boat capacity and accessories???

Just recently purchased a powerquest 290 enticer and can't find a capacity plate anywhere. I know this kind of thing is common sinse but all the other boats i've owned had one. Aslo need to know if anyone knows where i can get accessories for this boat....powerquest hats..shirts..coozies..stickers..that sort of thing. Baja has a really nice page for this stuff but no longer own a baja..Thanks

I don't think boats larger than 22' are required to have capacity plates. As far as the other stuff, you can probably get them custom made somewhere locally.

Capacity plates are not required by the CG on boats 27' and larger. As for the accessories I would look in the PowerQuest forum down the site page. Should have some better luck with brand specific question down there. Congrats on the new boat.

290 Enticer, there is a rather basic formula that the coast guard uses..

Length x Beam divided by 15.

So if you're boat is 29' Long x 8' wide divided by 15 = 15.4

So you could have 15 people on your boat.


I'm pretty sure only boats under 20' require capacity plates..

Here's a page with some reading.

By the way the general rule is "Seat for every ass on the boat"
