Ben recoding mass of boat weights

Hi Ben, I'd like to read more about how the weight in a boat affects it's performance. Why is it important to know how much a boat will hold? My brother built the "Enterprize" - a replica of the ship that brought the first settlers to Melbourne from Tasmania a couple of hundred years ago. That boat held many passengers and luggage as well as sheep, chickens and cattle.
