    Take either of the British-flag Artesiens and slap a new name and date on it.
    Ps Is it me or is the french frigate proserpine name spelt like that it looks wrong

    Better idea would be make a paper copy of the Log, then laminate that and write the chits on it with dry-erase marker. Less fighting with chits over the course of a big long game, less pieces to lose.

    You can find many of the ships simplified logs also for the type of use that DB suggests here Andrew.

    https://sailsofglory.org/downloads.php?do=cat&id=6

    I use these or similar for the really big games like Basque Roads, the Nile and Trafalgar. It speeds up your game, chits are returned after each play so the balance is not disturbed, you don't run low on chits, and the mats take up less room on the table. You can see them in use in some of my solo campaign games here on the Anchorage. If you use a dry wipe marker it will clean off with baby wipes very easily. As we found out when one player used his own sharpie you need something like oven cleaner or Bar cleaner to get that off.

    I would like to say thank you to Diamondback for his work in finding other potential ships for the Ares Models Thanks to him Royal George will now be HMS Neptune 1797 i still plan to use Hibernia as Hibernia as she was a 1 off i think so now i can have a British 1st rate or a British 2nd rate i just love a 2 for 1 especially as they are now different classes I would especially like to thank Bligh those ships logs and card inserts are just what i need and i would not have a clue how to get them to look anything like that good Love them and Thank you again for taking the time and trouble to do them look forward to the rest no hurry as i have to paint the ships sails and masts yet not going to rig them beyond me i think i may have a go at using brush plastic bristles as the right colour flexible and only have to cut them to size and dab a bit of super glue to fix in position try on 1 of the amazon frigates i brought off Steves collectables for 6 not too much of an investment if it goes wrong or is not durable enough.

    Andy, Hibernia was a cut-and-stretch copy of Ville de Paris, in turn a "cut and stretch" copy of either Royal Sovereign or Royal George (sources differ about which ship was used as a starting point) redesigned with enclosed stern galleries.

    The Victory we have isn't quite right, SGN201 should be red to represent her before the 1805 rebuild while the color scheme it wears should be on an SGN108 to represent post-rebuild sailing off toward Trafalgar.

    Bellerophon is on the stocks Andy. I have spare ship mats if you need them but not the chits. I can send them on if you PM me with your Snail mail.
