Look for tubes that carry 1600 lbs plus.
On Jack's Plastic Welding website they used to have this hilarious video of a guy with a 25 horse outboard flying around a lake.
p.s. I agree with the 16' comment. (mine is a 16' NRS river cat)
p.s.s. I honestly never looked at my load capacity, but I've also always been the gear pig and held way more weight/gear than the other boats (the largest being a 16' NRS E series raft)...am I lucky to still be floating??? Maybe.
