The displacement figure is given in short tons. What is the source for the use of short tons? Kablammo (talk) 22:19, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
I have eliminated the short ton claim, and the conversion. The USGS typically used long tons,, fn. 4, as does the USN, and international treaties and conventions. This vessel antedated the assimilation of the lighthouse service by the Coast Guard, but there is no indication that the lighthouse service would have measured displacement by short tons rather than long.
