payload for yamaha 90 hp

hi there,
I am a member of a dive club.And we have a 5.9 mtr humber destroyer with a 10 yr old yamaha 90 hp 2 stroke engine.
could any one tell me what would be the maximum payload that it comfortably handle,i.e.number of people with 2 12ltr air tanks,and various bags of dive gear.

cheers,
Fraser.

Chances are the boat will be rated for around 1000 kgs. We use a 200kg per person average weight when set for diving so you're looking at 5 or six depending on kit configuration.

Saying that we've had 8 on our 5.5 with a 90 on the back, but didn't go too far

Not sure if your 5.9 is a 5.8 or 6.0? Either way the payload is around 1300 kg which includes engine fuel, anchor etc. So treerat is about right with 1000kg. How much the 90 can push will depend on whether you have the right prop on it. Fitting more than 5 fat divers and all their kit in the boat will start to get a bit of a squeeze anyway.

We're not ALL fat, dear boy - it's the frightful outfits we're compelled to wear, they're so terribly unforgiving. Better tailoring, that's what's needed - Gieves & Hawkes do such lovely work with leather, I'm simply positive that they could work their magic also with Neoprene and Lycra.
