My best estimate would be a tad under 3.5 tonnes for a single engine, to a tad over 3.5 tonnes for a twin.

Although I've given the weight in metric (tonne, not ton), the tad was imperial. If it was metric it would be tadde. Playful Wink

One of the reasons our European cousins demanded we went metric was that they had no idea about the concept of Imperial measurements. I add this list in an attempt to assist.

10 fluid ounces = half a pint.
2 half pints    = 1 pint
Only 2 pints officer = 80 fluid ounces.
Just a quick half dear = 160 fluid ounces.
Never more than 3 units Dr. = 2 quick halves.

and in length...

Hairs Breadth = Tiny, really very tiny indeed.
7 Hairs breadths = Gnats whisker.
13 Gnats whiskers = a Smidgeon.
19 Smidgeons = a Tad.
7998 Tads = a Stones throw.
29 stone throws = Just up there, you can't miss it.

To standardise things, a silent order of monks (nobody knew where they were from, they wouldn't say) wrote that those numbers were to be the basis of all measurements thus for quantity...

a pinch = Tiny, really very tiny indeed.
7 pinche = a few.
13 fews = a handful.
19 handfuls = a bucket load.
7998 bucket loads = a Shedload.
29 Shedloads = a lorryload.

and finally, the one you've all been waiting for.. Weights.

Next to nothing = tiny, very tiny indeed.
7 Next to nothings = light as a feather.
13 light as a feathers = Hardly know you've got it.
19 Hardly know you've got its = a get it off me foot.
7998 Get it off me foots = a Cop the weight of that
29 Cop the weight of thats = a Lytton Discovery/Elysian super sportsman.

I hope this definitive answer is of some assistance to you.

I feel sorry for the kids. Whilst fishing the other week my 14yr lad asked me how deep the water was at the edge.
"Two foot" was my reply.
He then asked how deep 'two feet' was.
A quick calculation gave me the answer about '60cm' I replied.
'Yes but exactly how deep is it?' he continued.
'Find something to measure it!' I snapped patience wearing thin.
Five minutes went by until I heard the lad moaning.
"what's up?" I asked.
"I found out how deep it is at the edge!" he replied.
"Well how deep is it?"
"Over the top of my wellies!"

Now I put all this down to computer games. Having recently worked on modelling a 3D film set for a computer animation I found that the American's use a scale where there are 16 inches to a foot.


He's fallen in the water!
