    It worked! It really worked! At Doylee’s gesture, the little midshipman hauled for his worth and the signal flag broke out at the main course peak, followed by the Grand Union on the taffrail. At...

    If anyone gives it a try, I'd love to see pictures posted here.

    Incidentally, I found that the transoms have to be painted a light color for the decal to show up well.

    I created this in Paint, then cut and pasted it into LibreOffice, my free version of Microsoft Office. Once there, I scaled it to 0.31 inches and made multiple copies for clumsy fingers.

    I like SoG because I feel that it does a good job of recreating the feeling of sailing on a tabletop. Of all the commercially available games, I think it does that the best. I haven't played the...

    New Transom

    I like everything about the Concorde frigates except the transom.

    58461

    The only practical thing to do is to change it. Here's my first attempt with MS Paint and some decal paper.

    A potential wind speed decrease is on the table.

    With both ships reloading, Saratoga decides that it's safe to tack.
