Does anyone know the recommended base sizes for Roman Seas ships beyond the ones found in the core Roman Navy set described in the instructions? I tried signing up for the Yahoo discussion group, but as I understand, it can take a long time to get approved for that.

All Yahoo groups are dead so you will never get an answer from them.
This is the place to ask. Sorry but I do not know the answer.

I suppose you might ask on Wargames Vault

I can't recall the source for this list, but I think it came from Eric. Note that the "classical" ships have the same base sizes as suggested in the Roman Seas Model Assembly Guide.

Roman Scout, Hemoila & Liburnian, Carthaginian Monoreme & Bireme, Small Merchant Small Actuaria, Small "War" Actuaria, Small Saxon, Large Saxon: 5.0 x 3.0 inches
