Big people on jet ski's and stability issues

I'm a big guy (300 pounds) and my girlfriend is 145 pounds. So together we are 445 pounds. Do 2 seat jet ski's handle this weight? I've always borrowed my bro-in-laws 3 seater and have been fine, but now I want to buy my own.

No. 2 seaters usually have a capacity of 340-350 lbs. If you rode alone you'd be fine but with a passenger you'll need a 3 seater.

imho generally 2 person skis are better suited for really only one person. Same wtih 3 person skis are really better suited for 2. Depending on the ski it could more than likely handle the weight, but the ski may become pretty unstable.
