Overall survivability and seakeeping ability:
 Survivability (Non-critical penetrating hits needed to sink ship):
   2,783 lbs / 1,263 Kg = 3.2 x 12.0 " / 305 mm shells or 1.3 torpedoes
 Stability (Unstable if below 1.00): 1.22
 Metacentric height 1.6 ft / 0.5 m
 Roll period: 13.3 seconds
 Steadiness - As gun platform (Average = 50 %): 70 %
   - Recoil effect (Restricted arc if above 1.00): 0.96
 Seaboat quality  (Average = 1.00): 1.63
Hull form characteristics:
 Hull has a flush deck
 Block coefficient: 0.590
 Length to Beam Ratio: 5.74 : 1
 'Natural speed' for length: 15.15 kts
 Power going to wave formation at top speed: 28 %
 Trim (Max stability = 0, Max steadiness = 100): 43
 Bow angle (Positive = bow angles forward): 20.00 degrees
 Stern overhang: 0.00 ft / 0.00 m
 Freeboard (% = measuring location as a percentage of overall length):
