One more question, why don't the deck plans include fresh water tanks and systems to recover used water?

While (to my knowledge) this has no official explanation, many of us asume those systems are between the floors.

Most ship maps assume a height 3 m per floor1 but a ceiling height of about 2.4 m. This would leave about 60 cm of interfloor space, and many of us asume all plumbing (and most recycling, water storage, etc) is inside those spaces in most ships.
Note 1: at 14 m3 per ton, with 3 m heigh a dton is about 4.6 m2, while a 1.5 m square is 2.25 m2, so making about 2 such squares/dton.

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

Traditionally decks are ~3 m with perhaps 0.5 m devoted to plumbing and life-support:

So anything we can't be bothered to consider is hidden between the decks...

In no small irony - several ships in that book only work if under 2.2m/decktop-decktop.

The Far Trader deck plans are for the Geonee variant...

I have noticed that several of the ships are, um, quite large, but I have never calculated deck heights to make them work.

I assumed the designers used a bit of artistic freedom, i.e. didn't really care about size.
