yeah, capacity is quite variable. even if one were to use a quantifiable measure for example "one inch freeboard remaining", how well the canoe functions matters greatly. While weight/capacity seems like a straight forward metric, I would suggest trying out your short list options with the maximum load you expect to see how well she paddles.
