The home-made grenade traced an arc of fire through the night air, as neat as a line drawn by a compass. George heard the bottle punch through the window and reached back for the next one.

It has a wings and parachutes for steering, but only if you want to be a pussy about it.
Are you envisioning something like a giant aquatic trolley bus? [link]ådbuss_Landskrona.JPG
If so, SUH-WEET .
Thinking about it, having railgun projectiles rather than powered airships is a very clever way to go for a society without combustion tech. Still, it might lead many people to take alternative modes of travel (like ocean trolleys ) due to the rapid acceleration/decceleration.
Zeppelins could also be big, although that might be too cliché...
