Ship space, strength and comments:

Space - Hull below water (magazines/engines, low = better): 64.1 %
- Above water (accommodation/working, high = better): 137.4 %
Waterplane Area: 5,121 Square feet or 476 Square metres
Displacement factor (Displacement / loading): 185 %
Structure weight / hull surface area: 38 lbs/sq ft or 185 Kg/sq metre
