Talking taking passengers on ships

I stumbled into this game on Dec 2020, and after searching and find a file to download, I played this game almost immediately. And reading all your chats, tips and tricks was really helping me back on my feet on playing this game.
I have one question nonetheles which I can't seem to find any info about it, it's about taking passengers on frigate (or bigger ships). Can anyone please give some info about it, because I'm really curious about this...thanks a million before

Hi there,

anyone still playing 1869?

I am trying to play it and got stuck a little.

I am beginning with the Odessa route with arms until April 1856. After that I am buying a steel Brigg 600 tons or maybe two of them.

Starting routes: Liverpool/London to Rio then coal to NY, amchines to New Orleans, Textiles to Puerto Bello, Repairing in Savannah, Sugar from Havanna to Amsterdam

Second ship to Cape Town or some cities in Africa for ivory oder rare wood. Or I sent them to Melbourne, Bombay, Singapore

After the opium war I try to sent a ship with silk to L.A and textiles back.

Captains order is hard, with two dots back in the salery.

But it seems that I dont get enough money per route to bring some cash in the warehouse for the taxes.

Is still someone here who plays 1869 with success? Ive read the whole posts in the thread, so I am up to date.

Can anyone tell something about the procedure from 1856 to maybe 1869 what he does over the years, a little schedule so to speak maybe?

Hi Magisthan,

I haven't played the game for a while.

Paying taxes is tough - you'll need close to perfect efficiency for doing so.

Hence, most of the time, the best approach is NOT to pay taxes by selling your ship at year end and rebuying it at the start of next year (you'll need a flag in that city to be able to do so). If I remember correctly, the ship will then already be repaired. The difference between the sell-rebuy price is smaller than the repair cost plus the taxes which are not paid any more.

Hope that helps... (and hoping that I remember this correctly...)
