Half? never heard that word used. but if you use the amount of 22 troy pounds - chest and contents{42lbs.} = 20 lbs { for the chest}in simple math, yes, then approx. 1/2.



The statement he made was in response to an e-mail a woman, explaining how she try to carry 2 20lb bags of dog food and how difficult it would be. FF being FF could have just replied maybe two trips, for the simple reason she had two bags. And now we are talking about it as it is a fact of what he did.

Seeker I have read somewhere that a Troy pound was less than a pound and tha the Troy pounds of gold was something like 16 pounds

I'm only going by what was reference to the weight of the gold in the chest. Your right, troy weight used for gold is just less than an ounce and less than a pound. Using just pounds for the contents, the remaining weight would be the chest itself.

That would be a very interesting statement if true. I have not heard this before, do you know more on this statement? where or when you may have heard it?

A troy ounce is more than our standard ounce. There are only 12 troy ounces in a troy pound. So yes, a troy pound is less than our standard pound of 16 ounces.

A troy ounce of gold is 31.103 grams to the troy ounce and 12 ounces to the troy lbs.

2 trips. One by boat following the poem and one by car following his route to hide it.
