I'm almost 100% sure you are mistaken (no offense). Many capacities listed dont even assume the motor.

However, federal law only requires boats under 20' to have a capacity plate, and it is up to each state to decide whether or not to enforce the capacities. In many states it is only a guideline, not an enforceable regulation.
