Default 10-ton runabout and variants (V2)

1e, this is a revised version of what I originally posted over a year ago.
------------

10 ton Type I runabout

The runabout (sometimes referred to as a dinghy) is a very small boat for use on ships where an air/raft has insufficient performance and a launch is too large. It is often used in asteroid belts. The crew of one sits in a cockpit while the passengers ride in acceleration couches. Some models have a control cabin rather than cockpit.

Using a 10-ton hull, sA M-drive and sA fusion plantl, the runabout is capable of 2G acceleration, carries 0.5 tons of fuel (good for a week), and has a crew of one. It has a Model/1 computer and standard electronics in the cockpit. The runabout carries five passengers and 2.8 tons of cargo. An airlock is installed. It is streamlined and costs MCr 5.55 (4.995 w/10% discount)

The Type II carries 9 passengers, 0.8 tons of cargo and costs MCr 5.67 (5.103 with discount). The Type III carriers two passengers and 4.3 tons of cargo and costs MCr 5.46 (4.914 with discount)
-----------------
10 ton sports runabout ("sprinter")

The sprinter is a high performance version of the runabout with more interior comfort.

Using a 10-ton hull, sC M-drive and sC fusion plant, the runabout is capable of 6G acceleration, carries 0.5 tons of fuel (good for a week), and has a crew of one. It has a Model/1 computer and standard electronics in the control cabin. The sprinter has cabin space for one passenger and 0.7 tons of cargo. An airlock is installed. It is streamlined with aerofins and costs MCr 8.55 (7.695 w/10% discount)
-------------------
10 ton refueler

Small outposts need a way to restock the fuel supply for their fusion reactors. Most small craft fuel skimmers are too large and expensive for the modest need of these facilities, so a modified runabout is used to skim ful for the outpost. Unlike most runabouts, it lacks an airlock.

Using a 10-ton hull, sA M-drive and sA fusion plant, the runabout is capable of 2G acceleration, carries 6.5 tons of fuel (a 0.5 ton tank for the refuler and a 6 ton tank for the outpost is services), and has a crew of one. It has a Model/1 computer and standard electronics in the cockpit. The refueler has a 0.2 ton ship's locker. It is streamlined and costs MCr 5.5 (4.68 w/10% discount)
------------------
10 ton runabout cruiser

The cruiser is a longer ranged runabout with better comfort. It allows for a leisurely cruise of at least two weeks in a system for up to three people.

Using a 10-ton hull, sA M-drive and sA fusion plant, the runabout is capable of 2G acceleration, carries one ton of fuel (good for two weeks), and has a crew of one. It has a Model/1 computer and standard electronics in the control cabin. The cruiser has cabin space for two passengers and 0.3 tons of cargo. An airlock is installed. It is streamlined with aerofins and costs MCr 5.6 (5.04 w/10% discount)
