Since folks mention cover...
I never detailed this..
Front of ship.
Right starboard - Rowboat small cover maybe 4-5 feet off deck so gotta duck.
Left Port Side/Right Starboard ropes - can be only usually 2-3 feet
tall so not much cover.
Stairs - Has 3 sided walls. Could use said walls slightly.
Rigging - Up about 4-5 feet up so no cover below knees. Can us sails
as cover but not hard cover.
Crows nest - 4-5 feet tall so have ot duck for cover.
Lockers - Tallest locker is 4 feet off deck. Water barrels or other
barrels maybe 5.
Could move barrels on top of lockers iwht force (if empty) then could
use that cover around 8-9 feet OR if empty hide in barrel.
There are usually 2-3 empty at any one time. Maybe half a dozen
empty crates from hold.
Crates are 2-3 feet tall so would have ot stack.
Steering wheel - No real cover aside form wheel house but its like 5% cover.
Ropes - Liek Forward section.
Railings Port/Starboard - 4 feet high, Side panels about that high to
railing itslef so 4 feet cover.
Front railings - Slant up to 7 feet at true peak of ship. With
panels as high as 5 feet in some places.
To prevent water splash.
Rear Railing - Since this is the poop deck literally. No side
panels. Its just a 4 foot railing levitated on vertical poles. So
for rear no real cover.
So overall merchant ships are not meant to play hide n seek.
So not much cover sadly.
BTW Captain's quarters windows do open and so cabin gives some cover.
I think that covers it all?
Don't be surprised if I Fast Forward to JUST before missile range.
Ie 350 feet. Since we got 3 and 5 min before ships meant it'be a lot
Ships getting closer..
So will FF to about 350 range.
Bows are 300 feet at best.
hmm maybe 500?
To give reaction time if needed.
Instead of the 1500+/2k feet I said in a previous post.
