    Two new ships are on their way to me as of last night. I decided I needed a 38 gun Spanish frigate, so a Carmagnole will be reflagged and repainted. The inspiration was:

    Traveling in company the 38 is a Sirena, which will get reflagged as American.

    Interesting bit of information there Dobbs.
    I had not come across this one before.
    It will be great to see the result.

    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.

    Nice backstory to the history of the HMS Guerriere. We all know her fate after she was brought into RN service!
