Can Cats Carry Some Weight ?

I'm not saying anyone sailed with this load, but on FB's PDQ owner's group, this picture was posted, taken in 1999 with 42 people on board a PDQ 36, which BTW, only weighs 8500 lbs. Let's see, 42 X 180 (the new average weight for airline passengers)= 7560 lbs of people.

Bridgedeck clearance looks a little low.
