The Maritime and Coastguard Agency conduct a load line experiment on the Georgian every five years. The load line experiment gives us a license to carry 11,250kg, equaling 150 passengers. Giving us the maximum number of guests. Not everyone weighs the same, so we have a load line painted on the vessel’s side. This line submerges below the water if we exceed the 11,250kg. Therefore, if the load line is submerged, some guests will have to stay behind even if you have less than 150 passengers. As that would be too upsetting to ask, we mitigate this risk by reducing our maximum to 125 guests. You can exceed 125 guests to 150, but you must be prepared to ask some to stay behind if the line submerges. There is no exception to this rule.
