The drawing is very attractively rendered!
That said, it seems to suffer from a fatal flaw: a lack of freeboard. Thirteen feet relative to the floor of the hangar, and only six feet relative to the RHIB aft. The ship does not seem survivable in a heavy sea even in an undamaged condition. She might be taking green water into various hull openings even in Sea State 5.
That's not an outright show-stopper, but it's contrary to all aircraft carriers I know about, and I assume their designers know more than I do.
Agreed. And the draft should be deeper to counterbalance the above water weight.
