Um, how many of them, being groundlings, have a uniquely space kit?

I feel much the same way about new classes, especially one note ones, when a
kit would do. Like the War Mage. I take it that rigging doesn't boost
Manueverability in your world, either?

BTW, Ship tonnage isn't weight, it's volume. Water displacement, actually.
Just like with sea going ships. That's why the volume of one ton, as given in
the rules, doesn't vary according to the material used.
