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!
