I think I read somewhere that it was like 3 feet laterally.
Here is a link to an article that claims there is no lateral movement from firing a broadside of all guns:http://www.supertightstuff.com/03/19/pictures/picture-of-the-day-pictures/potd-battleship-broadside/That article links to a "further information" piece that I cannot get to at the moment.
Dammit Knuck, ya landlubbing trouble maker, we don't need to get confused by the facts while we're spinning a sea story. :/
Heh now! I ain't too much a landlubber to know what 16 inch/50 caliber means (without googling).
