Default 1994 Maxum 1700 xr capacity plate

Hello fellow boaters, i purchased a 94 1700 xr and it's missing the capacity plate. I've google'd, yahoo'ed, wiki'd and bing'd for some numbers but have come up empty. Can anyone maybe take a picture or enlighten me? My brothjer in law's got a bayliner of the same year, size, engine type and hp but I'm not sure if It would be compatible. Any help would be greatly appreaciated. It needed some work (paint buffing, seats, prop, bilge pump and battery). Thanks to my local craigslist I've knocked out three of five issues and I'm buffing'er up quite nicely so in reality I just need some electric juice to be ready for the season. I'll post some before and after pictures as soon as I'm satisfied with the final results. Thanks and be safe

Efrain S.

If you google capacity pleate there is a formula that you can use to figure this out. Length x beam and divide by 15 to get your number of people. Example would be in your case....17 x 7 = 119 divide by 15 = 7.9 people. Seem alittle too many but this is what I have found. The weight per person is 150 pounds.

The Bayliner plate would work for yours too...

Hope this helps..........

Roger

If you can somehow find the specs, here is what I made so I could get a new label made.
I think you can go to any sign shop or someone who has a plastic engraving machine, I was lucky enough that my brother has one at his work.
It is just 1/8" thick yellow plastic that is black underneath so when engraved, the letters are black. I then attached with double sided foam tape (3M tape).

Just input your numbers and you should be all set

Thanks for the information guys. Do you think I could get one from brunswick or a bayliner dealer with the hin number? Your's looks good Mac but I'd really like to get one from the manufacturer.

I think you are going to strike out there, sorry. When I tried finding one for my 96 2100SR, I was told that it was no longer available. So short of calling many, many bayliner dealers and hoping one happens to have an old one in stock, you may want to just give up and make one. You might get lucky though
Since yours is 2 years older than mine, I think the chances of finding one is slim.

Oh, and to add, if you call Brunswick, they should be able to give you the numbers from the plate at least so you would have the needed info to make one.
