I know the tonnage of a barge (894). How do I figure out the weight capacity of the barge? Since tons are calculated in different ways based on location, which kind of ton (long, short, or metric) would I even be using for a US barge operating in California? I'm trying to determine whether a barge that shipped materials such as sand and aggregate (all with different densities) ever carried a load greater than its capacity.
