I read the sailing chapter last night and I'm very happy that we have different kinds of ships and some description about them. I also love that they tell you how many people you need as crew.
Now, I am clueless when it comes down to ships and I remember having trouble with the first edition about this. They say 10 crew is enough and sounds solid to me but, I guess a Schooner is tiny compared to a Man-of-war, right? If 10 crew is enough I take it that is the average crew for a Brig or a Frigate as they seem to be the most used ships? Shouldn't a Schooner have less crew and a Man-of-war have way more?
I read somewhere that even big ships don't need as much crew as people normally believe but I don't know if this is true or not.
