"(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
