    Oops, this was supposed to go in "Historical Discussions", but it would probably make for a good scenario.

    It is OK here Jason.
    There is always that thin line of distinction in these cases.
    Yes you could certainly get a game out of this one too.

    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 was a good call Jason, thanks, it gives a contemporary account of a small engagement and makes it quite real. there is some thoughtful articles in on the magazine although it purports to be Ancient to Medieval so needs a bit more looking at.
    Cheers
