For this fleet I wanted to use four or five mast ships with a base speed of L+S before a Helmsman for my gunships. I wanted two gunships and at least one treasure hauler also moving at a minimum of L+S. here is my first draft.

Both gunships move a base of L+S and with the helmsman move L+S+S. They also have the same action twice on a roll of 5/6.

The Banshee's Cry moves L+L but with the explorer only has 3 cargo for treasure.

I would add UT:

Grease Barrels
Castaway (Captain Alarico Castro)
Spices
Maps of Alexandria
Jade

Using five UT's means I can add three gold coins each valued at five. It increases the chances of grabbing high value gold.


Sea Nymph 11
Captain 3
Helmsman 2
Calico Cat 3

Oxford 12
Captain 3
Helmsman 2
Sir Christopher Myngs 3
Hag of Tortuga 0

Banshee's Cry 3
Explorer 1

Favor of the Gods 2
or
Hidden Cove 2

Interesting fleet that's good for a mixed fleet. The venue I play at doesn't allow mixed nationality fleets. A possible alternative would be to go straight Pirate.

Replace the Oxford with the Neptune's Horde and Sir Christopher Myngs with Le Requin. You lose a bit of cannon accuracy, but gain a cargo space and the ability to swap treasure. Since most games are won through treasure accumulation, this isn't a bad thing.

hi
my style would be replacing the sea nymph with either a raven or royal james ( is it necessary to mention that i am a speed-freak with a class 2 cannon-fetish? ;-) )

i am not the guy who can argue against the oxford ...imho this ship is a pearl which combines speed and a more than decent punch ( besides..its only uncommon).

did i miss something or are the 2 captains on the oxford a typo?

greets bone
