Subject: RE: Calculating crew boxes... (AO problem also)

```
That was always my assumption.
Take damage boxes and divide by crew.
Place first crew in right most box on bottom row.
Fill in working right to left spacing the crew evenly.
If there is one left over, place it in the right-most open box on the
lowest
row.
