    Thanks for the dispatch Captain Manley.
    The main news as far as I'm concerned is the release of the Starter sets. That availability alone will make

    I wonder whether they will use the old manufacturing (molds?) or have to create new ones, in which case correct the scale of Constitution and the Spanish

    I have a potential taker for $20 at the moment, Hawkeye/Rory. I'll keep you informed.

    Has anyone ever heard of Pirateship for shipping?

    Hi Dobbs,
    I'll offer to carry it across the pond if someone in the UK wants it but can't afford the shipping and you don't have any buyers this

    The stuff has gotten a short reprieve, but the clock is definitely ticking. Unless someone wants it, the Solo Stove is calling...

    The specifying of pistol shot is a term of art for the relative position of two vessels (seen frequently in descriptions of 'close engagement') - that

    It seems that Admiral Rodney is saying that a particular weapon can throw a particular ball X distance. Does he say anything about at what range it becomes

    Yes, this is what Adm Rodney appears to have written. If you put a 14" carbine calibre naval pistol in the hunes and fire it level it will carry

    I have fired both a period pistol and a musket, and can assure you that even with a rifled barrel at 400 yards with a pistol you might as well try shooting

    David, just to clarify, are you saying that sailors of the time considered a range of 4 football fields to be musketshot or perhaps even pistolshot?

    I think a line can be seen, where the RN saw no advantage to the excessive power of the 42pdr, not being useful enough at the 'moderate' ranges actually

    Regardless of the power of a period gun...

    At a range of 1 cable (600 feet), 1 degree of arc covers roughly 10 feet. Therefore if you held

    I like the collision rule Dobbs. I will adopt it. I will also try out a range stick with your dimensions.
