Although i also think that your ships should be a bit bigger, maybe that's simply a question of personal taste. What is surprising to me is how outdated they are Some of those are on their way out and only retained for the war. I could not upgrade the sail/steam vessels to all steam because the hul...

It was possible, but it would have to be a small, shallow-draft monitor. The Rio Grande wasn't/isn't very deep.

Voluminous representations! Far more time and patience than I have.

As somebody who actually works on vessels that are actually build, and as somebody currently working on an calculation tool much like springsharp but for an a lot smaller series of vessels, I cannot help but comment on this. When you get ready to beta test that, I'd love to try it. I hate trying to...

One question about your fantastic Battleship Republic. I think that for your proyected desing speed, (and also because the ship is from Texas, well known oil productor) are you only relying in oil firing boilers? Cheers. Yes. I'm using oil-fired boilers almost exclusively now. Far more oil than coa...

IIRC, Redhorse, you posted a long time ago an description how you design your ships, with deck plans and everything. do you still do that? To some degree, depending on the ship and how much time I want to spend. Deck plans take a LONG time to finish. Here's a shot of Invincible with a transparent o...

I'm in no way well-versed enough in that era's ships to join the debate on the feasibility of your battlecruisers, but I have one fairly noobesque question about them: based on IRL designs, is it accepted practice to have torpedo tubes just above the waterline at the edge of the armor belt? Wouldn'...

That is what you call putting your reputation on the line. Unfortunately for you, you do not seem to have read the various discussions held on Springsharp in the past. The outcome is normally to use Springsharp to check your drawing to see if what you have drawn is possible. But not to rely on it. ...
