Are weight crates a scam??

You're right. it is 8k to 1.6k. Still the capacity is 4x what the OP is listing. 

oh is it? i gathered info from the forums and discord for an overall idea, will update once i get my own values.

Link this other post about ship speeds, its wrong or your leaving something relevant out. Each crate has a capacity of 8000kg that reduces the ship top speed by a fixed 6.7% (40/6) and a variable weight contribution up to 1600kg for a maximum weight crate. If you have 6 full crates that's 6x8000=48000kg of stuff you are carrying for a weight effect of 6x1600=9600kg. 10000kg (the original 30% weight) + 9600kg=19600kg or a little under 60% weight, not 75% in your example so your already going significantly faster. That's point one, point two is your 75% is actually only moving 75% of 30000kg = 22500-10000kg base weight = 12500kg moved while the crate solution moved a full 48000kg.

@Simonsays095 wrote some really good guides on this, start with this one

and then have a read on the others.

 

since i see some huge disparity between the information i gathered and what you guys mention i will do a live test on my own and share the results, ty for pointing it out.

It's fun to charter an accountant 
and sail the wide accountancy, 
to find, explore the funds offshore
and skirt the shoals of bankruptcy!

Yup, it’s official, I’m definitely naming my next ship the Crimson Permanent Assurance.

Recent and real life example.  Loaded up on wood, 28640 kg out of 33900kg.  

No rack, was making 7-8 knots (ish).   Stopped, created rack loaded it up max.  

New speed, 10.25 - 10.8 knots.

Just be careful when zoning at the edges of the map.
