After editing ship, adding it to the convoy after a while the summary cargo capacity is updated, and you can haul more cargo. The problem is that the convoy can`t move out of the port. Looks like some check is done, and convoy is deemed overweight, without an error message.
Additionally, editing a newly bought ship can result in ships class degradation. I bought a Cog class, edited it, and it changed to Shaikka - lowest clast, with default settings.

The max sailors value is a 2-byte value. The third byte is for ship class, and the fourth is for the amount of stars of the ship (upgrades?). Which is why the ships keep changing to snaikka's. Cal, could you change it? Preferable add the Ship Class option into the editor? 00 = Snaikka 01 = Crayer 02 = Cog 03 = Hulk 04 = Hanseatic Cog 05 = River Cog 06 = Caravel 07 = Cog (Again?) 08+ = ERROR_TYPE_UNKNOWN In other words, don't go beyond 8. Too bad, no badass battleships...
