Wondering how much weight an FX One can handle before the fun fades.

I am 180 part time crew is 190.

What other boat might work that one person could right?

I weigh about 160, and I usually have crew at about the same weight and you hardly notice the weight when just sailing around. It doesn't really seem to sit much lower in the water either. I think too much of the flotation is forward so your crew is pretty much married to the front beam most of the time or else your dragging the back of the boat around.

Sailed my FX this summer quite a few times giving rides and I found that everone coming back to the beach had the ear to ear grin going.
