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.
I'm almost 100% sure that the rating assumes a full tank of fuel and stock ballast being full as well. In this instance you'd only be counting 1500 pounds of weight.
