Max weight/persons on a Camano?

There seems to be different talk out there on this subject but I can't find anything concrete (maybe because it doesn't exist?). Assuming boat is fully loaded with fuel and water, how many people (or pounds) would you think should be the max on board? 10 people (1500 pounds) sounds about max to me but I'd love a more concrete answer if one exists. Five people max on the flybridge is enough for me...

I asked the same question a while ago for our 30’ Sundowner Tug and Tad Roberts (naval architect) was kind enough to offer a ‘ball park’ answer:

Another way to look at it is...how many people could you safely fit into your dinghy in an emergency?
