    Thanks for the Heads up Dave.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    That should be very interesting.
    I was very impressed by the new display when we were down there last year.
