Default Andrew Help!

I'm doing a deckplan for a broadsword class cruiser for someone at the cartographers' guild but I've run into a problem. I've used the side elevation of the broadsword on Andrew Boulton's website. From this I guage that the radius of the sphere is about 17m. This provides a volume (4/3 * pi *r^3) of circa 20.5k m^3. From this site, I see that there are 14 m^3 to a dt which makes the ship on Andrew's website some 1,400 dt, which is nowhere near the 800 dts it should be.

I know that Andrew is punctilious about these things - so I'm mistaken somewhere (and I'm not great at maths), so where have I gone wrong?
