Ship displacement[edit]

I changed the ship displacement from 7400 to 1300. I admit the source puts it at 7400 tons, but others put it at 1300 tons. A ship of 7400 tons, even for the size of Caligula, would be way too much for a wooden ship. It might be possible if Caligula's ship was a steamboat made of steel, but by looking at the archeological remains it's all wood so far. [Gnip|Gnip] January 2, 2007 10:59PM

And someone changed it back. I'll try to find something more definitive.Doug Weller (talk) 13:01, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
