Naval Crafts & Heavy Guns

Following-up my post on Naval Combat, here are some stats to get that working.


Each ship is unique, but here are some typical numbers.  Note that a fully-laden boat travels at 2/3 speed and an overloaded boat at 1/2 speed.  Also, boats can be loaded to double their standard crew capacity, though it's by no means comfortable.
