Sorry that I didn't read the article on the ship from your website.?

I find it very interesting to know they were able to portage such a large piece of equipment as this ship. How much do you estimate the Washington tonnage was. I guess I didn't realize they had that good enough roads. Probably winter it was easier to move heavy loads.

1 Answer

the tonnage capacity was 36 tons - however the ship would have weighed less than that. The exact weight is not known.
