          Per the O.G. it states max occupancy "approx 45" so a full boat was 45 and a "full 45" was a very full boat... all I am going to say on that subject!

          Let's say that some Skips were better at loading then others and leave it at that. There is a certain finesse to getting over 2000 people on the ride in an hour!

                        Just PM'd you the details but here is the basic math. 7 to 9 on the center box, and the rest on the sides... including the doorway. It takes a good Front Loader to pull this off, which is the Achilles heal of the new crew. The old crew had a lot of experienced CM's who could load fast and efficiently, new kids leave a lot of gaps and empty spots.

                        Used to be that the Front and Rear Load would compete with each other. Rear Load has it easy, it's a giant J... all along the outside edge. Frontload has more of a II type... with people behind them, on the box, and in front of the engine. Rear Load used to load as fast as they could, and Front Load either kept up, or did the splits. If you do the splits enough you get really really good at being efficient and fast. Some of the old Front Loaders got to a point that they would start stealing Rear Load's seats.

                        There was also communication. If you had empty you automatically slid people over and called to the other Loader that they had X extra. If you had over then you called out to have them save you a couple. These days they have enough trouble getting them in the boat within the time frame (in other words not causing a backup just to seat 2 more people), let alone sliding people around to make more room. The last part is the Skip in the boat. If it is a strong Skip who has everyone's attention they can get people to slide, and keep people on the center box. Weaker Skips lead to chaotic boats or as we called it "Festival Seating... sit where you want just remember to place all coolers and lawn chairs on the floor beneath your feet... and tuck small children into the overhead bins above you."

                        On a positive note, the crew is trying. You can't blame them for the lost experience.

                            Well I know a raft sank, I know a keel boat sank (flipped technically) I know a Jungle Boat started to sink... actually know the Skipper who was in it when it happened... and now I hear the Mark Twain had a "moment". So I guess the physical properties of water are not suspended by the magic of Disneyland

                              There was an unbeliever aboard on each of those occasions. I have proof!
