    I'll have a closer look at that when I get a bit of time Scott.
    Thanks for the Heads up.

    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.

    Very interesting text.

    It very much explains an aspect often overlooked when trying to understand why the British was so successful during the age of sails.
