What Ships would you suggest for Irontooth?

My new Group is trying to add Irontooth to Drinax and due to what their offering, combined with me being too nice as they're old friends, means that unless they never roll higher then A 5 on any 2D6+5 Persuade Rolls that they are definitely going to succeed within 10 years, likely within 4 years and...

Well, you rolled a nine on six sided die, so I’d say it went spectacularly well.
It was A 9, A 6 and A 3 to be exact, on 2 six sided dice, then add A 4 or 13, so a pass by a mere +1, Sorry if I wasn't clear enough

Not really sure how to answer any of those 4 questions, mainly due to th...
