Recommended Maximum Displacement


Remember, always take the fully laden displacement weight of your vessel into account, this is often 20% above the designed displacement, so don't be tempted to choose a pilot which will always be working at the limits of its design capabilities. If you choose your pilot with safety in mind, it won't struggle when the going gets tough.
