"(1) 33CFR183.23 & 33CFR183.35 & .41Based on the manufacturer test data!@ the posted maximum weight capacity was excessive. Given the stated test tank displacement number of 880 pounds!@ the maximum weight capacity would be 264 pounds; the posted maximum weight capacity was 300 pounds.The capacity label was not marked with the maximum persons capacity in pounds. For a boat rated for 2 HP!@ the maximum persons capacity is 90 percent of the maximum weight capacity!@ less 25 pound to account for the engine weight.(2) 33CFR183.25(b)&(c)The posted capacity label did not include the line
