    No, I have not, but I do know about sculling the tiller - at times useful but at others a waste of time and effort and even a no-no. "Er, not sculling, sir. Just looking for a breeze, sir."

    That was a hard fought battle. The frigate, United States, may have "fought off a ship of the line", but she surely looks like she was in a scrap. All grist for the Boston rags, I suppose.:beer:

    "Trundling"??? That's not a sailing term with which I am familiar, Dobbs.

    I am nothing if not indolent! So, no worries about catching up.

    I can take no credit for the victory. It was Rob's scenario using Rob's tactics. :shock: :hmmm: No connection between those two...

    Not sure. That was 20 years ago. Anyway it all got sorted - at least with respect to google maps, etc., but I still check when giving someone my address to make sure they spell it right.

    I likely would have missed the Dutchess vs Duchess spelling if it hadn't been an issue around our street being called "Duchess". When we first moved in, it was a new street that had been entered...

    Oooh! Suzanne has a clever mind there. That would have been a good strategy for the French ships in this scenario. It would be interesting to play the French side in this scenario (or both sides...

    That is true - English used to have more varied spelling. Now we just have UK (proper?? :wink:) and US spelling. I will say that "Dutchess" gives it an nice period feel. I was just curious if...

    Indeed, well sailed. Three cheers for the crew of the Dutchess (sic) - curious about the spelling, says the chap who lives on "Duchess Street" and has seen some spell it "Dutchess".

    True on all accounts.

    I have to say I was impressed with the power of a double-spotted, first broadside stern rake! Never had a ship completely de-masted with a single broadside before.

    Horatio is floored. Mind you it might have gone the other way if the tempest was kinder to the Robuste and the Robuste's captain had the prescience to double-shot his guns.

    The game is done - lots of close in work between the battle wagons. Very Trafalgar-esque thanks to a scenario by Rob. (I think it's Robs. It's the 2016 March Scenario, Après la tempête).

    Happy New Year to One and All

    I've been away from the nautical side for far too long. I hope to get back into the swing of things lest I be swinging from the highest yardarm. :sad:
