General rule for weight to max capacity?

Looking to buy a kayak and I’m a big boy so I was wondering if there is a general rule of thumb on the percentage of weight to max capacity?

If I’m at 80% of the max capacity, is that too much?

On the company. What is your size, weight and what are looking to do??

that might help us.

I’ve been selling and putting people into fishing kayaks for 5 years or so now. Don’t go over half the listed capacity with your own weight.

You’re gonna need something like the Prowler Big Game to get started. Also check out the Malibu Kayaks like the Stealth 14 or X-Factor. The X-Factor is probably your best best.
