Now this question, I must concede, is above my pay grade:
Me and my girlfriend are going on a float trip tomorrow. I’m a big guy. 6’4 300+ lbs. She’s only 5’4 150. I’ve never been floating before, would I be too heavy for a canoe? will it tilt back? will we sink?? whats the average weight limit? someone let me know, i’m worried this won’t work.
The consensus seems to be that they won’t overload the vessel, but:
Can you stand up from a sitting on the ground position without overbalancing while the ground is wobbling beneath you?
Getting safely in and out of a canoe without capsizing it should be your first concern. Some large people are agile, others are not.
I fall easily into the “not” category.
