I recently purchased a 1991 Sweetwater 18' Fisherman pontoon. Previous owner replaced deck ,skirting and all seats. It does not have a coast guard sticker. If any one owns a similar boat I would like to see what your sticker says about how many people and how much weight it will carry. I plan a trip on the lake about 10 july and will have 2 large adults (250)and 2 reg adults (160) and  8 yo granddaughter. I do not think it will be a problem but would like someones opinion. Thanks

Here is a site you can check out: 
https://pontoonopedia.com/pontoon-weight-calculato
Remember the total weight is boat, motor, cargo, and people. You should be good with what you have, and are planning. I have a 19' it's rated for 8 people, but I can't remember the total weight right off hand.
