By the way, Dr. X is an old friend of mine; he's been in my FTF groups.

As for the ship - the ship itself is McBean's, not the Gov'ts.

If you want specific gear, the OS won't know unless SOMEONE asks. (And McPhee is modeled after the clueless engineer stereotype. He knows his tools, but don't count on him to actually THINK... (And his pips haven't even had time to tarnish!)

I am assuming, since it's rigged for sail, it's got a several hundred yards of essential rope, and about 150' of replacement. There's going to be gun spares.

As for what's on venus:
At present, 3 known colonies: Germany's, England's, and Italy's. Not a whole lot of civilian presence, and most of the UK thinks it's all lizardmen and dinos. The unfortunate side effect is that those who think they know dismiss that as propaganda, while those in the actual know realize that the colonies make Seattle (at this point, a frontier port town of about 3000) look tame and cosmopolitan. (Seattle is hitting a boom - in 1888-1890, it gains about 1000 people a month...)

The British colony is maybe seattle sized ... one town: Fort Collingswood.
the list of British Places on Venus:
Fort Collingswood. The reference.
Miraton 450 miles west
St Michael 400 miles south or Miraton, 600 SW of FtC.
Sherwoodton 300 miles east of St. Michael, 600 SSW of FtC
Alberta 500 miles ESE of Ft. C.
??? 700 mi NNW of FtC
Fort St. George 400 miles due north of ???
