*I have nine characters on the ship. What types of ships could be maintained by a crew that small?
*On that note, what kind of duties are the crew responsible for? (Master & Commander is still on my shelf, sixteen pages read.) When I searched on Google, I got results for larger crews.
*What must the crew do with the ship before retiring to bed? Taking down the sails, setting anchor--that kind of thing.
*And last question: What takes place on a ship at night? There must be some crew on deck around the clock.
Thank you in advance!
