Overall survivability and seakeeping ability:
Survivability (Non-critical penetrating hits needed to sink ship):
472 lbs / 214 Kg = 7.0 x 5.1 " / 130 mm shells or 0.3 torpedoes
Stability (Unstable if below 1.00): 1.39
Metacentric height 1.6 ft / 0.5 m
Roll period: 10.6 seconds
Steadiness - As gun platform (Average = 50 %): 70 %
- Recoil effect (Restricted arc if above 1.00): 0.22
Seaboat quality (Average = 1.00): 1.20

Hull form characteristics:
Hull has rise forward of midbreak
and transom stern
Block coefficient: 0.400
Length to Beam Ratio: 11.86 : 1
'Natural speed' for length: 22.16 kts
Power going to wave formation at top speed: 64 %

- Mid (50 %): 16.90 ft / 5.15 m (11.15 ft / 3.40 m aft of break)
- Quarterdeck (15 %): 11.15 ft / 3.40 m
- Stern: 11.15 ft / 3.40 m
- Average freeboard: 14.60 ft / 4.45 m

Ship space, strength and comments:
Space - Hull below water (magazines/engines, low = better): 183.2 %
- Above water (accommodation/working, high = better): 74.9 %
Waterplane Area: 7,670 Square feet or 713 Square metres
Displacement factor (Displacement / loading): 65 %
Structure weight / hull surface area: 31 lbs/sq ft or 151 Kg/sq metre
Hull strength (Relative):
- Cross-sectional: 0.50
- Longitudinal: 1.82
- Overall: 0.57
Hull space for machinery, storage, compartmentation is cramped
Room for accommodation and workspaces is cramped
Ship has slow, easy roll, a good, steady gun platform
Good seaboat, rides out heavy weather easily
