Need a ratio of gallons to a cubic ft. Lead is 740 lbs to a Cubic foot. See where I'm going.

Exactly. I have that written on my whiteboard, and then I have to convert that to cubic metres.

If you suffer from wimpy undernourished gallons.

We here have proper gallons - each of which would weigh in at ten pounds - so you can only get six and a quarter of them into a cubic foot (if you squeeze real hard).

I have to remind myself of that every time I watch Top Gear and they quote mileage...the ooooh usually changes to Oh!

And a considerably improved pint of beer.

You do know that google is also a calculator? Just type in your query thus:
( 3 parsecs / 2 seconds ) in (furlongs per fortnight) (http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp&q=%28+3+parsecs+%2F+2+seconds+%29+in+%28furlongs+p er+fortnight%29)
So 1 cubic foot in

Imperial pints (http://www.google.com/#hl=en&safe=off&q=1+cubic+foot+in+imperial+pints) (that would be about 50 pints of the landlord's best bitter)

Verra useful.

Cast lead weighs 708.5 lbs per cubic foot, not 748.

These are not the droids you're looking for.

there are 231 cu inches in a gallon, to find the volume of a tank
mult length x width x height divide by 231 and viola.. gallons.
of course saddle tanks that match the curve of a hull are trickier
due to the arc.
