Watch schedules are usually clearly posted somewhere in crew country ...
... so, is Jeb on watch at 7PM this evening?

(or) Are the topmen and engineers on liberty while the ship is in port?

No one has had liberty for more than a day in months. Jeb last had liberty 8 days ago.

Normal is Evening watch (1500-1800) by one of the officers - Pilot, Chief Engineer, or McPhee, or a borrowed OS NCO. Night watch has been rotating 1 Jeb, 2 Bosun's Mate, 3 Daws, 4 Engineer's Mate

The chief engineer quit - family crisis, resulting in Tunnaud's hire.

The Rotation for Dinner (1800-2200), Swing (2200-0200), and dark (0200-0600) watches has been


Day1234
1800-2200TM JebBM ___TM DawsEM ___
2200-0200BM ___TM DawsEM ___TM Jeb
0200-0600TM DawsEM ___TM JebBM ___
sleep straightEM ___TM JebBM ___TM Daws


It is day (1d4)[3] - so Jeb's got watch in the dark of the morning

Aramis, is the crew list in the Dramatis Personae now correct? Twelve persons aboard, leaving room for two more still?

Are the Asst Engineer and Engineer's Mate the same person, or two different people?

Where does the Bosun's Mate fit in the organizational tree or chain of command? What is his job?

Anybody else who should be on the list that I have left off?

The Bosun (not bosun's mate) is the hull maintenance crew, and the petty officer for the topmen as well. He answers to the Pilot.
The two topmen (Jeb and an as yet unnamed NPC) are the sailing crew - technically answerable to the bosun.
The Engineer (Tunnaud) and his mate are engine crew.
The two Gunners (Carson and Smithers) are answerable through dual chains to both McBean and McPhee.
The Bridge Crew is the Pilot and the Signalman. Airships lack a separate trimsman.
Lawton and the Dr. answer jointly to McBean and McPhee.
The Master of Record is McBean. The Mission director is McPhee.

All 13 crew accounted for.

OK, so you are adding a Signalman we haven't heard about before, and changing the Bosun's Mate that you had on the watch list into a Bosun instead. Got it. Dramatis Personae will be updated.

Isn't McPhee also co-Pilot? Or is McBean our only Pilot?

So we now have 13 persons aboard, with space for one more.

I assume Carson and Smithers are sharing a stateroom (possibly whichever one is closest to the ladder or stairs or whatever is the quickest way to get to the turrets?). The Captain has his own stateroom. I have no idea of the arrangements of anyone else.

No, there's only space for 13. 9 required crew, and 4 extra.

Hello? Please remember that I already spent considerable time doing a complete design of this airship, based on McPerth's specs and the guidelines that you gave me (including 10,000 cf hydrogen per ton of lift). I am rather familiar with the specs and applicable rules.

Since McPerth's specs show four additional passenger/crew spaces, that gives a total capacity of 14 (10+4). (This should be four tons additional mass per p.82; I don't know why he has it marked as ten tons, but that should give us a little extra cargo tonnage.)

=================================================

EDIT: Furthermore, your own words:

So we have the Captain's stateroom at 3 squares.

Then three single staterooms at 2 squares each = 6 squares.

Then 10 squares remaining would appear to be 5 double staterooms at 2 squares each.

1+3+10=14 passengers or crew.

Hmm. While not an M.D. Im the only Doctor on board. Do we have any kind of medical equipment? If not perhaps we should get some. Im sure the lab and my dissecting kit can do double duty for a few things but it might be good to have a full surgical kit on board.

We can use the empty state rooms as a sickbay if needed.

Unless I missed something that is....

The staterooms (except for 3) are double occupancy. No empties. McBean, the Pilot, and McPhee probably should have the singles (the Pilot and McPhee insist on singles). Everyone else is in doubles. The engineers can easily get away with hammocks in the engine room if they want to not be in the main, and there are no shortage of places to hit a hammock in the Envelope and Tail. Unlike normal airships, this one has an air-tight envelope - at least when operating at altitude. Once it hits very high, the vents get closed, and the ether prop can push it up and away.

McBean already has a single as Captain.

You yourself calculated three more singles.

That makes a total of four singles (counting the Captain), then five doubles.

If we have only 13 aboard (unlucky number, that!), then one of the doubles is only being occupied as a single.

Now who is this Pilot we are suddenly hearing about? Yet another person for the list? At least, that would make 14 and fill up the available staterooms.
