Default MT: RM Hulls and Non-standard Extrapolation

I found 7 of 32 UCP values that didn't match the results of the formula UCP x 13.5 = Volume in the vehicle table. Of the 17 entries 8 UCP values, 25, 35, 45, etc, don't match the formula.

Vehicle UCPs in question: 0.007, 0.019, 0.056, 0.093, 0.130, 0.25, and 0.75. Example: UCP 0.007 = 0.10 in the table and calculating the volume, round(0.007 x 13.5,2) = round(0.0945,2)= 0.09

The differences appear to be in how rounding the number off was handless The values appear to rounded to two decimal places. The table shows 0.007 has a 0.10 kL volume while the formula has the vale as .007 x 13.5 = 0.0945

Small Craft has 8 of 17 entries in the table that don't match the calculated value. Again the reason appears to be how rounding was handled. The 8 all end in 5. In this case the values have the ones place rounded to 1 or 5. The result is that the values in the tables are 3 kL off.

I have an Excel spreadsheet, I'm still trying to get used to OpenOffice, that has my results. (I already had to re-type everything since I took too long writing and I lost connection.

Section 2
I discovered, even with the correction by the consolidated errata, that as long as the custom hull UCP falls between two consecutive values, 1000, 2000, works very well. Unfortunately, trying to extrapolate weight and price between values like, 007 and .019 or 50,000 to 75,000, don't work as well. TNE has an interpolation method that appears to work.

Should I submit Section to Donald McKinney, or has someone beaten me that task?
