    She just got a raking shot here... even though I believe it has to be full broadsides I let it go.

    Looks like a sprightly young Cabin boy you have there Aaron.
    You can never get their names down too soon on the ships rostra lists.
    Thanks for posting this.
    Bligh.

    Nice pics to go with a neat little action.
    You are correct about the raking shot, it has to be the main broadside arc and travel through both short ends of the base to be correct.
    But worth it if you get the shot in a a reasonable strength.

    Nice AAR, Aaron.

    Unhistorical result but the French admirality is happy.

    Despite our losses the British Admiralty is happy to see another AAR posted on the Anchorage.
    Thanks again Aaron.

    We are going to try another game this weekend. Should be fun. I got some new ships in but one apparently has seen some prior action.

    That is exactly what a French Liner should look like Aaron.
