It doesn't say 700 Tons BM, It says 700 ton, which should probably be Tonneaux really, and is a different measurement.
If you check her as the British incarnation you'll see the British measurement of 1,071 18/94 Tons BM quoted.

She is not 700 tons BM, she is 1,070

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
