    Hi Michael. I see what you mean. I didn’t see it that way, because when I was in the Army we used a truck called a “Deuce and a half” which could carry two and a half tons. The truck empty weighs about 13, 000 pounds or six and a half tons. I assumed this one ton range meant cargo capacity. It would weigh far more than the truck I mentioned due to all the equipment you mentioned at minimum.

    Anita has the right of it.

    It’s not the mass of the yacht – although I could see why you might think that. In this case “one ton” is the cargo capacity, not the displacement.

    I’ve been reading books on Kindle Unlimited, however if buying your novels is better for you,please let me know so I can start buying your stories outright. I was under the impression that authors were paid about the same? If that’s not what’s happening let me know so I can put money in your pocket because you are the creator and should get the lion’s share of what’s being paid for your books.

    OK, that makes more sense, but still … one ton capacity? This still seems a bit light.

    Even just a system shuttle would have more. Lifeboats probably have more than that. Heck, I’ve had pick-up trucks with more than one ton capacity. Even for a small yacht, this seems a little on the light side.

    A yacht with a one ton capacity sounds like a pick-up truck with a 50 pound maximum payload.

    I still think ‘kiloton’ fits better than ‘ton’. It’s a bit more realistic, yet a small enough capacity to not even think of actually going commercial.
