Most yachts run out of space for life vests , before thry run out of space for pax.

IF you want to be super careful, to repel law suits, use the USCG method of measuring stability.

They use water drums , but if you line the guests along one rail and observe when the boat heels enough to loose 1/2 its freeboard , you will be close.

Getting an accurate weight from the ladys may be harder.

Any port or opening that does NOT have a storm port installed will be counted as the deck, when measuring useable freeboard..
