yesterday i witnessed a guy put in the river in his alum boat with 9 people in it, includ the 'captian', dude had maybe a 15ft shallow bottom river boat, with something like a 135 hp motor on it, the clearance from water to top of the boat in the stern was about 2''!! :o
No life jackets, most of the passengers were teenagers but the skipper was an adult, he had abt 5 of them sitting in the bow to try and counter balance the weight, then when he gunned it, the whole bow lifted 6 feet out of the water.Of course the teenagers thought it was a big laugh :-/
