2007 Tracker 175 TXW Person Weight Limit

Recommended Posts

Just curious of what your guys experience is with adhering strictly to the boats person's weight limit.  For example, my 2007 Tracker PT 175 has a 4 person/555 (or 560) lb limit.  Is this like anything else, and super conservative from the manufacturer?  Or should I be more considering the total weight limit with gear?

 

Thanks,

Jason

My opinion is the manufacture will always be very conservative on the numbers to cover their self.

Unless you have 2 600 pound guys I do not think that is the real issue. The issue is more the total of 2 or three guys + full fuel tanks,+ full live wells +three or four group 30 ( 65 # batteries) + a heavier 4 stroke engine, and then a ton and a half of fishing gear.

All that adds up. The thing is you have to look at how you use the boat.Will you need 2, 3 or 4 batteries, do you have to fill the livewells ( if you are not fishing tournaments do not fill them) how much tackle is enough? Limit your weight and be safe.

No, that is a US Coast Guard rating.
