Capacity for C&C 29' MK1

I have searched all over the internet for this info to no avail. I was curious to know what the coast guard states is the maximum capacity in terms of people and weight for a C&C 29' MK1.

Any info or direction on where to find this info would be awesome!

Re: Capacity for C&C 29' MK1

They don't rate sail boats the same as power boats. You won't find the info on any tag or rating document that I'm aware of... (waiting to be proved wrong) I believe the requirement is you need PFD's for everyone onboard and the load or number people can't compromise the stability of the vessel. I'm not sure and just postulating on this here but it might be a relection of the fact that most sailboats (not macgregors) have keels allowing for greater stability than on a smillarly sized powerboat. Ergo coast gaurd decides on number of people for powerboats because of greater risk of capsizing. Again just thinking it through or talking out my arse!
