carrying capacity malibu stealth 9

#1 Post by stevieq » Sun Mar 20, 2016 6:09 pm

hi guys, been looking at a second yak and like the look of the malibu stealth 9, the specs are a bit confusing though, bcf states that the load capacity is 125 kgs, while on the malibu site it states that its carrying capacity is 147 kgs..... Do any members own a stealth 9 that can clarify this? regs, steve

Thats a bit odd, the only thing i can think of is bcf has lowered the rated carrying capacity to give themselves more legal coverage maybe??
