Default Maximum Mass for a Stutterwarp Vessel

OK, I need someone to check my math and reasoning here.

Stutterwarp cannot work at FTL speeds in a gravity field greater than 0.0001G and cannot work at all in a gravity field greater than 0.1G, so since gravity is based on mass, then the maximum mass for an FTL starship is one that will create a 0.0001G gravity field and the maximum mass for a STL stutterwarp ship is one that will create a 0.1G gravity field.

The values that I am getting for maximum FTL stutterwarp mass are 14985.5 tons and maximum STL mass is 14985763.5 tons.

I'm using g=Gm/r^2 and solving for m with r being equal to 1 since it is the radius of the mass itself.
