  >  Cannon Calculator
Have you ever wondered how many sailors you really need on board to fire your cannons effectively?

If you do not have enough sailors required for your cannons, your cannon damage will be reduced.

Also there is no reason to have too many sailors on board since that will just waste your provisions.

Use this tool to find the exact amount! Make sure you add some buffer incase they die in battle.
Minimum Sailor required by your ship
Cannon Quantity - (Do not include Stern or Bow)

dunno, but i used to think you needed one sailor per cannon

guess i was wrong?

understandable as it is based on minimum sailor reqs. since min sailors is whats needed to sail the boat you cant expect them to sail a boat AND fire canons efficiently at the same time!

lol the battle galleon has 108 sailors and 64 guns and this says 165 sailors

If you notice a lot of ships are like that PPolo, many ships can't even use the maximum cannon they can be refit for, due to too few cannon slots. Arabian Galley for instance has 3 cannon slots, but can support 84 guns (supposedly) but unless there are (28) cannons you can't max it.

Don't forget to add in any Bow or Stern Chasers - they require crew as well and don't use the normal cannon slots. IIRC it is 6 for Bow and 8 for Stern slots.

As an example - that Arabian Galley has 3 Cannon Slots ( max 3x16=48) plus a Bow and Stern Cassette (14) for a max cannons of 62 - granted a lot less than the supposed maximum.
