Max hull spd 5 mph

It will not carry anywhere close to what a 16' jon boat can.

Don't know what the weight limit is, but I have had 4 large adults and 2 kids with coolers, gear etc.. No problem on calm water, plenty of freeboard left. It was a short ride. 3 adults with lots of gear is no problem in most conditions on this boat.

There is a picture somewhere of an FL12 with around 10 people on board but it is not safe.
Depending on the local conditions, I would say max. 4 adults.
