The second volume is correct, I thought I'd fixed that. Sigh...

The frozen watch is broken into the same crew sections as the crew is, hence 75x4. A standard frozen watch would be one crew section (75); however, the original Regal design from TCS has a complete replacement crew, so in reality, there are four crew sections waiting to be unthawed.

And the total crew is really 313; I've made a few slight changes here and there (and replaced the small staterooms with real staterooms since there is room).

So, let me see if I can post version 2.01 tonight...

Sorry, but this is still confusing me a little. The formula in Referee's Manual pg. 82 states that Frozen Watch is Total Crew, divided by Hull Displacement Tonnage divided by 1000. So in the case of the Regal, that would give a Frozen Watch of 4, which is the second stage in your calculation. I would have expected this to be the final Frozen Watch value, but you then multiply this by 75 to get a total Frozen Watch of 300.

Is this purely a design decision to fit with the original Regal, or is there something I am missing here ?

It's purely a design decision to fit with the original Regal. And it's not a great design to begin with.

I'm simply trying to fix the best example we have.

And v2.01 is now posted...
