In the text I read that the Nile aka HMS Conway was "54 ft deep". What this means is anybody's guess. Please recall that the largest modern container carriers have a draught of 14.5 m. I see that the box mentions a beam of 54'. Beam for the landlubbers among you means width. Everybody got to be somewhere! (talk) 00:12, 17 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't know why you didn't just change it yourself! Never mind, I've done it now. Shem (talk) 23:06, 17 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

According to Pilot R J Jones, aboard for the '53 outward transit, the draft of HMS Conway was 21'10". User:Lodestoneman (talk) 21:06, 22 Aug 2011

The section "From Mersey to Menai" reads "local residents were startled one evening to see a picturesque Nelson-era ship of the line, a "wooden wall", entering the Menai Strait". The lead says that the ship was launched in June 1839 (which is 30-something years after Nelson's death). I'm no maritime expert but is there a phrase that expresses the intended idea more accurately? Dave.Dunford (talk) 17:46, 3 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
