I will speak for the boats I have mentioned. A 16 foot Bayliner bow rider has a capacity of 5 or 6 depending on the YOM. An 18 foot has a capacity of 7 or 8. I have owned jon boats that could hold 5 people without crowding.

Thanks in advance,
The Lowe I mentioned above handled 4 big guys fishing and crabbing.

It also handled four with waterfowl hunting gear very well going back and forth to remote shore blind.

I think most folks are spot on about a V hull and a bigger boat. Also higher freeboard is a plus. There's been mention of weather getting rough in a hurry, but a much bigger and more constant threat is assholes in big boats that throw huge wakes without any consideration for folks in little boats.
