Hello friends , I have recently purchased a 1967 M15 Rich Line aluminum boat and for the life of me I can't find any info on this boat to save my soul . I know it's 15 ft long and 5 ft wide at the widest and 52 inches at the transom , can anyone tell me a formula for figuring out the safe weight capacity for this boat . I'm running a 1962 evinrude 5.5 fisherman motor on it at the moment . Thank you for taking the time to read this post .
My 63 Monark 14 ft 52 at transom says the max is 950 lbs so somewhere around there.
1963 Monark 14Ft V-Hull
Say , thanks a million 63Monark , that's very good to know . Now I can kinda judge the amount of people and gear that I can safely have on the boat .
I'd say that probably with my wife and daughter and bloodhound along with motor and gas and battery and trolling motor, that's just the safe place to stay , I'm probabily at 800 lb right now with all of my tackle,so , I'll leave it at that and no more passengers than what I've got now .
