I notice that they're suggesting 420kg as equivalent to five adults, i.e. each one averaging 84kg. A little more realistic than the traditional 75kg per person; but, as an example of today's obesity, I was involved some little while ago in certifying hire boats as to their stability with the maximum allowed persons on board. This was as a consequence of a boat capsizing - with loss of life - having on board two families each comprising two adults and four children, i.e. ten persons in total.
Their weights were as follows: adults 108kg, 102kg, 102kg, 95kg; children 89kg, 89kg, 76kg, 70kg, 57kg and 57kg.
