Distribution of weights at normal displacement:
Armament: 16 tons, 1.2 %
Armour: 9 tons, 0.7 %
- Belts: 0 tons, 0.0 %
- Torpedo bulkhead: 0 tons, 0.0 %
- Armament: 9 tons, 0.7 %

Fuel, ammunition & stores: 211 tons, 15.4 %
Miscellaneous weights: 50 tons, 3.6 %

Overall survivability and seakeeping ability:
Survivability (Non-critical penetrating hits needed to sink ship):
410 lbs / 186 Kg = 13.4 x 3.9 " / 100 mm shells or 0.3 torpedoes
Stability (Unstable if below 1.00): 1.28
Metacentric height 1.4 ft / 0.4 m
Roll period: 11.3 seconds
Steadiness - As gun platform (Average = 50 %): 71 %
- Recoil effect (Restricted arc if above 1.00): 0.16
Seaboat quality (Average = 1.00): 1.20

Hull form characteristics:
Hull has raised forecastle
and transom stern
Block coefficient: 0.400
Length to Beam Ratio: 10.79 : 1
'Natural speed' for length: 21.08 kts
Power going to wave formation at top speed: 66 %
Trim (Max stability = 0, Max steadiness = 100): 59
Bow angle (Positive = bow angles forward): 1.00 degrees
Stern overhang: 0.00 ft / 0.00 m
Freeboard (% = measuring location as a percentage of overall length):
- Stem: 19.85 ft / 6.05 m
- Forecastle (20 %): 19.85 ft / 6.05 m (13.12 ft / 4.00 m aft of break)
- Mid (50 %): 13.12 ft / 4.00 m
- Quarterdeck (15 %): 13.12 ft / 4.00 m
- Stern: 13.12 ft / 4.00 m
- Average freeboard: 14.47 ft / 4.41 m
Ship tends to be wet forward

Ship space, strength and comments:
Space - Hull below water (magazines/engines, low = better): 175.7 %
- Above water (accommodation/working, high = better): 62.1 %
Waterplane Area: 6,696 Square feet or 622 Square metres
Displacement factor (Displacement / loading): 69 %
Structure weight / hull surface area: 29 lbs/sq ft or 141 Kg/sq metre
Hull strength (Relative):
- Cross-sectional: 0.50
- Longitudinal: 2.17
- Overall: 0.58
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
