    Default Tim Honier and Monse fifth battle

    Fifth clash between Tim Honier and Monse.
    Advanced rules: deployment and reduction of sail, close-range musketry fire, limitation of crew actions, special damage and delayed repairs.

    Tim Honier leads the French ships: frigate Courageuse (34 guns), ship of the line Bertin (56 guns).
    Monse commands the English ships: frigate HMS Terpsichore (34 guns), ship of the line HMS Polyphemus (64 guns).
    Northwest wind.


    1. The French frigate begins with a daring maneuver, passing just behind her flagship.
    2. The French ship of the line maneuvers cunningly and inflicts a leak on the English frigate.



    3. The English can only fire from their bow or stern: the French ship of the line is dismasted, and the English ship of the line is hit by the French frigate, which suffers a few points of damage.
    4. The French ship of the line perfectly anticipates the maneuvers of her adversaries and inflicts an enfilade fire on the English: after the water, fire on board!



    5. The English ship of the line compensates with the next maneuver, but her long-range shot lacks power.
    6. At the center of the action, the French ship of the line fires at her English counterpart, but receives the English frigate's cannonballs.



    7. This time, the French ship of the line fires on the English frigate (fire on board) and receives a distant but effective shot from the English ship of the line.
    8. Having rounded the island, the French frigate inflicts further damage on the English frigate, which retaliates ineffectively from both sides.



    9. Deadly gunfire between the English ship of the line and the French frigate, which exchanges musket fire with the English frigate, which itself is dismasted by the French ship of the line.
    10. The French frigate blocks the English ship and destroys her for good.



    11. The French frigate inflicts further damage on the French ship-of-the-line, which retaliates weakly.
    12. Two maneuvers later, the English ship of the line misses.



    13. Taking advantage of the headwind, the English ship-of-the-line damages the deck and a mast of the French ship-of-the-line.
    14. A second maneuver with a headwind allows the English ship of the line to fire from the opposite side and inflict a leak on the French ship of the line, which sinks her on the following turn.

    Result: both ships heavily damaged, the English liner and the French frigate decide to return to their respective ports.
    Interesting management of special damage (waterway, fire, broken mast), as well as repairs and compensation (pump, extinguishing, carpenter).
