These are both excellent pieces of advice, thank you!I've definitely experienced this issue on some of the slow boat rides (Small World and Living with the Land in particular), but it hasn't stopped me from riding. Usually the loading CMs are good about distributing weight as they assign parties to rows, but one thing that can help is asking to be in the back row. This helps in a couple of ways. First, the backs of the boats on rides with longer boats (SM, Pirates, LWTL, etc.) are usually designed to handle more weight than the fronts. I've noticed the boats are more likely to dip/drag when I'm in the front versus when I'm in the back. Second, if you're in the back of the boat, no one else on your boat can see you. I know people will say things like "oh, don't pay any mind to people who are being mean/nasty", but I can say from first-hand experience that those kinds of comments hurt, and I try and find ways to avoid being in situations where I might draw unwanted attention.
