OK, here's how I look at it. My holding tank is 25 gallons, times 8#/gallon = 200#, = .090909 GROSS tons.

Beyond that, I really don't care.

I'm curious as to the gross tonnage (not displacement), of the different vessels that folks*on TF own.*Have you calculated your GT, or did that info come with your boat? *KJ*********************
*The Eagle was registered when we bought her at 45 ton gross and 36 ton net.* The original marketing material shows 70,000 lbs or 35 ton net. When we pull, the actual was 39+ ton.* However she only had 200 gallon of diesel, so if we added another 1000 gallons of diesel, and filled the water tanks she would be about 43 ton.** So 36 to 45 ton seems a reasonable range.

RE: Gross

Marin's favorite book, Chapman's, has a good description of tonnage, displacement and documentation*that applies to smaller vessels. At least it appears in*my 1983 version.

On USCG Form 5397 Section 5 asks for shape of hull. There are 4 options. None are perfect choices. With a semi-displacement Nordic Tug, it looks more like an integrated keel (sailboat) on the bow and a powerboat near the stern. Which is the best response? (Or, does it matter despite threat of $20,000 fine and boat forfeiture?)

"Powerboat" is the best option for your NT.

Thanks. It seemed the best answer, but the threat of losing my diesel-burning girlfriend got my attention.

One difference between gross tons and net tons is space not counted because it is designated for non cargo.

Although the USCG differs , our vessel should be Net 0 tons as we have a WWII brass casting that designates
