What is the max weight anyone has had on their Hobie 16? What is the recommendation for weight as far as crew? I saw in the specs for the H16 that it has a capacity for 800 pounds, but I was thinking that also includes things like mast and rigging, sails and whatnot, so I am wondering, peoplewise, what is the max load. I have a family member who wants to sail and he's a heavy person. I would love to take him sailing because he's never been sailing ever so, I just want to know what the actual capacity of an H16 would be.
