Dead weight


Explanation:
I believe you mean "Peso Muerto". But if what you want is "pesos muertos" you'd be talking weirdly about boxing "dead (heavy)weigths" for instance. Here goes my version: "The (Harbour) Terminal consists of a wharf with capacity to deal with ships of up to 130,000 dead weight tons". Hope it helps cheers :)
