Capacity of the channel screw steamer?
« on: March 01, 2014, 12:11:08 PM »
May I ask - what was the source for the passenger carrying capacity of the channel screw steamer? Currently, this ship has a lower comfort (in Experimental) and a lower capacity than the luxury coastal paddle steamer - but I need to know whether to adjust the comfort or the capacity, so it would be helpful to know whether this ship has an historically accurate capacity (in which case, I need to adjust comfort) or a guessed capacity (in which case I might well need to adjust the capacity, as it is a quarter of the size of some contemporaneous coastal paddle steamers, whose capacities are historically accurate).

Guessed. Adjust as you see fit.

Thank you for letting me know. Did you also guess the power and maximum speed, or were those (or either of them) from a source?

Thank you for letting me know. Is the same true of the channel paddle steamer?
