No mention.

A good equation to remember for astrogation is

gy = c

If you accelerate at 1 gravity for 1 year you reach the speed of light - or
would if not for relativistic effects.

I doubt the Loganstone could manage more an 1/100 g acceleration.  Even that
would "raise" the front end miles above the back end, in effect.

It's a big problem, but it is not a significantly bigger problem for a round

Maybe it was cone shaped?
