    Very interesting to see the encounter played out rather than just reading am account Bill.Thanks for posting this one. It was very similar to many single ship battles we have played, though far more dramatic.

    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.
