Maybe this is a stupid question, but I don't know much about physics and weight distribution in rafts. My question is this:
Will adding a couple of strategically placed thwarts add load capacity to a self bailing raft with a rowing frame?
It seems like the more floatation you have the more weight you should be able to carry...
I realize of course that every space filled by a thwart reduces the amount of space available, but just a thought.
Thanks in advance.
