And people run a lot more than that.

It's a stupid number, there needs to be a better system. Sure it's a pig at that weight, and I wouldn't be turning aggressively or traveling at high speed, but it's not going to sink.
Now hand your boat to an inexperienced person on a shallow lake in a bad storm.

It might sink then.

Rule is, don't open the lockers and show them. If they ask to search or board the vessel say no. You have that right. But you better be following all other laws.
