    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.

    My final sinking ship unless I can find a 50 gunner going cheap.

    Only a bit more paint dabbing and she'll be ready for the high seas.

    The original mini was an HMS Orpheus.

    All I need is an Orpheus, and I will be adding to my little US flotilla Dobbs. She really does look the Bee's knees.

    Yet another inspiration for me to join the US Navy in a more determined manner Vol.
    Nice ship, but a pity that oversized figurehead of the President got detatched. Good job that the barge managed to salvage it before it sank.

    Bligh.
