Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.

the weight limit for the boat will be listed on the Coast Guard tag that in mounted inside the boat. Adding the plywood floor is a common addition for these boats. To assist with some flotation, you could add foam under the wood. This would also help to quieten the ride of the boat. Subtract the weight of the wood and the gear inside the boat, and you will come up with the total capacity for the boat.
