Reblogged this on DDOCentral.
As usual I appreciate your efforts and willingness to share your work. Another great contribution Thank you. If you accept a suggestion I would revise the draft of ships. In my opinion they are on the low side especially if we take in account the possible weight of the crew and cargo. May be insted of feet could be yards. The Draft of the barge and raft leave me a little bit puzzled as they shoul be the example of a very low draft.
I agree. I can’t now remember where I originally got these numbers, but they have always seamed off to me as well. Can you point me to a reliable web site where I can find more realistic numbers, or perhaps some way to calculate the draft of wooden ships. I must admit complete ignorance on this topis.
Thank you for your input. I will definitely reevaluate these numbers before I post the next update.
If there is anyone reading this that can provide me with more accurate draft depths for these ships, please share.
Hello Ronny, thank you for the kind answer, i am on the same boat as you, no knowledge. I have done a search on crossections images for sail boats and based on that i would propose that the draft could be like 1/3 of the boat’s hull for simple designs an 1/2, again of the hull, for models that have big fore and/or aft castles. I think that the ship’s plans you inserted at the end of your document somewhat confirm this ratio. Now based on the number of of the decks and their simulated height some new numbers can rougly come out. I hope i somewhat contributed.

Thanks. That gives me a good place to start.
