Load capacity of a 46' cat (Bahia)

Anyone have a rough guess as to what the load capacity of a FP Bahia would be? Thanks.

Thanks. So if I planned on 9,000 lbs it would be overloaded and at 6,000 I'd be lightweight.

That's based on it being "Dry" .

11520 Dry -
220gal water*8 = 1760 lbs
105gal fuel*8 = 840 lbs

Available carrying capacity = 8920 lbs = 4.46 tons = 4046 kilo's
