I was advised against it as they said by the time I loaded all my gear I would be pushing the boat's intended limits.
I have the PBW Spitfire 13 and I weigh 240# and it handled me, my food, camping and fishing gear with an extra paddle etc for an extended 7 day trip pond hopping in Algonquin Park. 2-3 day solo trips would are a piece of cake. I never felt or did it look overloaded nor did it feel unstable. My trip partner had a Rapid Fire on the trip as well but we were essentially solo tripping.
