    Um, let's see.  Two more inches before they submerge that thru-hull on the starboard side.  Nine people plus a random outboard.  Is that a portable genny on the swim platform?  Luckily, the captain's not drinking too.  Oh, wait.

    Looks like a genny but wait - it appears to be fueled from the black pipe headed into the engine room....

    Guessing that's a 250?  Not the boat ... I mean the guy who has to stand on the swim platform because there's no room inside the boat.

    Who swam out to the water to take the picture?  There's probably a 10th person.

    It’s nice that they got some youngsters out on the water.

    I want to see it under way with that payload.

    Wow!!! I'm surprised they made it as far as they did.  That line into engine room would really be the final straw to make sure I stayed far away.

    Do you think the kids are relegated to the bow for the duration of the journey to balance the load? Maybe the v berth is also full of kids?

    Maximum weight carrying capacity of this boat is 1400lbs. Overloaded much? You can't fix...well you know what.

    Bonus points for the extra fuel stapped to the bow rail.

    For reference, I fully loaded my 250 before bottom painting, with four people and gear, to see where the water level should be. The top of the paint in the photo is about an inch above the waterline and the entire stripe is above water.

    I’ll be raising mine next time I paint to avoid the annual stain clean with acid rub process.

    You guys think 1400 lbs displaced ALL that water?? By my calculation, each 6" of displacement (boat lowered into water due to weight) requires about 2000 to 3000 lbs of weight. That swim deck is almost completely submerged ... way more than 6" ... something else is going on there ... unless each passenger weighs like 400 lbs, lol.

    That model year had the underslung platform that practically touched the water anyway. With that 9.9 hanging on the very back, fat dude and generator on the platform and the two heifer's sitting in the back seat I'm not surprised the edge of the platform is in the water.

    Not according to @andyd. He's saying he still sees an inch of bottom paint. That means you have 8 to 10" before you submerge the back end of the swim platform.

    I say this photo is a FAKE.  A good one, cleverly done, but fake.  

    Look at the water surface around the boat.  It's completely undisturbed.  A 250 with nine people aboard would be rocking all over the place.  There's absolutely no way it could remain motionless for long enough that the water could lay down like that. 

    Fake.  The artist is reading this thread and laughing.

    Is anyone selling a hardtop for a 310 or know where I can get one?!
