Overall survivability and seakeeping ability:
Survivability (Non-critical penetrating hits needed to sink ship):
4,654 lbs / 2,111 Kg = 43.4 x 6.0 " / 152 mm shells or 0.9 torpedoes
Stability (Unstable if below 1.00): 1.18
Metacentric height 2.4 ft / 0.7 m
Roll period: 13.6 seconds
Steadiness - As gun platform (Average = 50 %): 70 %
- Recoil effect (Restricted arc if above 1.00): 0.52
Seaboat quality (Average = 1.00): 1.20

Hull form characteristics:
Hull has rise forward of midbreak
and transom stern
Block coefficient: 0.430
Length to Beam Ratio: 10.50 : 1
'Natural speed' for length: 26.28 kts
Power going to wave formation at top speed: 59 %
