Columbus took possibly Carracks and Caravels, the former beingbased on the latter. Some records suggest Carracks may have been asmuch as four times the size of Caravels. On a…verage, a Carrack from the 1500s might have the followingdimensions, though note this only accounts for one mast (the MainMast), and ignores the sail itself, and cargo and other factorswill alter a ship's weight. 1500s Carrack Length: 35 meters Beam (width): 12.33 meters (about 1/3 of length) Height: 22.33 meters (Bow x1.75-1.8) .
Topside (height above water): 34.75 meters (75-80% ofHeight) .
Draft (ship below water): 5 meters (Height remainder) Main Mast (tallest): 14 meters (Height + 3 m), 1 m diameter Volume: 18,152 cubic meters (L x W x H + Mast's L x W) Weight: Volume x 0.083 tons (or Volume x 165 in pounds or x 75 inkg) Caravels were usually between 12 and 20 meters, so you should beable to use the information and formulas above to deduce a workableset of stats for Caravels.
