    Below is the layout of the tray. The three ships are stored across the top, the maneuver decks are stored to the right and the ship logs are stored below the ships.

  2. More Captains and Crew instead of ships!

    Hello, all!
    I was thinking that perhaps ARES should focus on upgrading the existing ships with modifiers like Captains, Commodores, Vice-Admirals, etc. rather than making new ships for wave three. My reasoning, is that there aren't many modifiers to the game that allow the player to employ tactics that would compensate for lack of firepower against a stronger opponent. I mean, wouldn't it be fun for the Alligator to take on the USS Constitution, or the HMS Royal Sovereign?

    And here's what I did.

    I cut away the pink parts and used the gun from the cut away hull to add as a gun aft.

    The stern was filed to get a more rounded look and then paint does the rest.

    The main and mizzen masts were moved aft. I cut them off and drilled both the mast and the deck to strengthen the seam with a pin as is described elsewhere for the broken foremast problem. I also cut down a little on the foremast
