Just so everyone knows where I'm starting from, the designs from the 'old' Filipino ships thread will remain as designed (i.e., as revised previously).

Here's my first 'indiginous' design. I intend to build a number of these starting in Q4/1923.

(I actually designed this ship for the 'Andean Empire', and thought it was too good to file away , so...)

MSC-1, Filipino coastal minesweeper, laid down 1923

Length, 135 ft x Beam, 27.0 ft x Depth, 3.5 ft

219 tons normal displacement (196 tons standard)

Main battery: 1 x 1.6-inch

Light battery: 1 x 0.3-inch

Weight of broadside: 2 lbs

Hull unarmored

Maximum speed for 400 shp = 12.42 knots

Approximate cruising radius, 8200 nm / 7 kts

Typical complement: 28-37

Estimated cost, $108,000 (£27,000)

Remarks:

Ship has slow, easy roll; a good, steady gun platform.

Excellent seaboat; comfortable and able to fight her guns

in the heaviest weather.

Magazines and engineering spaces are roomy, with superior

watertight subdivision.

Ship is roomy, with superior accommodation and working space.

Distribution of weights:

Percent

normal

displacement:

Machinery ........................ 13 tons = 6 pct

Hull and fittings; equipment ..... 128 tons = 59 pct

Fuel, ammunition, stores ......... 27 tons = 13 pct

Miscellaneous weights ............ 50 tons = 23 pct

-----

219 tons = 100 pct

Estimated metacentric height, 0.9 ft

Displacement summary:

Light ship: 191 tons

Standard displacement: 196 tons

Normal service: 219 tons

Full load: 236 tons

Loading submergence 74 tons/foot

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Estimated overall survivability and seakeeping ability:

Relative margin of stability: 1.16

Shellfire needed to sink: 1024 lbs = 529.1 x 1.6-inch shells

(Approximates weight of penetrating

shell hits needed to sink ship,

not counting critical hits)

Torpedoes needed to sink: 1.1

(Approximates number of 'typical'

torpedo hits needed to sink ship)

Relative steadiness as gun platform, 73 percent

(50 percent is 'average')

Relative rocking effect from firing to beam, 0.00

Relative quality as a seaboat: 1.52

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hull form characteristics:

Block coefficient: 0.60

Sharpness coefficient: 0.46

Hull speed coefficient 'M' = 6.84

'Natural speed' for length = 11.6 knots

Power going to wave formation

at top speed: 49 percent

Estimated hull characteristics and strength:

Relative underwater volume absorbed by

magazines and engineering spaces: 47 percent

Relative accommodation and working space: 156 percent

Displacement factor: 279 percent

(Displacement relative to loading factors)

Relative cross-sectional hull strength: 1.14

(Structure weight per square

foot of hull surface: 36 lbs)

Relative longitudinal hull strength: 4.26

(for 9.0 ft average freeboard;

freeboard adjustment +2.0 ft)

Relative composite hull strength: 1.30

Strong little ships indeed....

I just wonder that the Phillis start building minesweepers. Is minewarfare to be expected in such an environment? Surely, every navy needs some minesweepers and if you havn´t some yet you better start building but with all those tiny little islands I would have expected patrol boats to be build.....?!
