Building a Foam,Glass Epoxy, Flats\pirouge skiff. Fishing and Ducks.....

Made a call to TXPW to ask about registration inspections ect. The gal on the phone stumped me when she asked what the weight capacity is empty. :-/ no clue why, but my best guess is overloading  or HP????

Check out the Backyard Builder Safety Standards sticky at the top of the Bragging Spot Section. I believe there are formulas in there to help you calculate capacity and I know there is a formula for max horsepower. You did specify that you were looking to register a home built hull, correct? Some data that is required to "register a boat" is not required to "register a home built boat". This also varies state to state, so Texas may be different than my experience in Maryland.
