How does Coast Guard determine how many passengers are permitted on a "T-Boat"?

**16 Sep '19, 14:15**

There are 3 criteria, used to determine the number of passengers:

- "Length of Rail" criteria, allowing 30 inches of rail space along the vessel's sides and transom for each passenger
- "Deck Area" criteria that permits one passenger for every 10 square feet of deck space available for passenger use
- "Fixed Seating" criteria that allocate 18 inches of space for each passenger to rest his/her buttocks upon

Any of them or their combination may be used.
