Can you use steel to buy coal ships still?

Yes, it converts at 1 steel = 10 coal.

The option only turns up IIRC *if* you don't have enough coal but you do have enough if you convert some steel.

You can, but it's not advisable. The only circumstances to consider doing so are:

a) There's nothing to spend the steel on, in your opinion AND...

b) The ship is being withdrawn soon, is widely considered worth having, and there isn't time to get enough coal.

Wait until the last possible minute.

When you have enough Coal AND Convertible Steel ... clicking on the ship's picture in the Armory will return a screen similar to the following ...

I agree ... and that's why it's still sitting in the Armory ... just to be used as a steel conversion example. 

Next time, I'll use my old example of the Jean Bart (which I also did not convert steel for ... just waited for the coal to accumulate). 

I wouldn't want you bashing your head against the screen ... :Smile_veryhappy:
