This fleet is my entry for brettb45's Small Fry fleet challenge.

My biggest aim for this fleet was diversity; I wanted one ship from as many nations as possible, and I managed to squeeze in the Big 5.

Starting off we have the USS Maryland as flagship. She's clocking in at speeds of S+S+S. That's 33% more S than normal. She will definitely be a force to be reckoned with, and her Captain will only make her more deadly. At 13 points (including crew), she's the most expensive ship in the fleet.

Representing Spain to support the Maryland, please put your hands together for El Algeciras. Another ship that probably should have been banned, 6 points is nothing for a fantastic support fighter. All she has room for is her Captain, though it wasn't like she was going to be picking up treasure anyway.

And in France's corner is the sturdy Arrogant. While susceptible to ramming, her ability makes shooting at her with a one-master completely worthless, and a two-master needs to hit with both of cannons in order to do any damage. Again, very cheap and a great value for 8 points total.

England's HMS Hound and the Pirates' Bloody Jewel are both speedy gold runners. Though neither of them carry Explorers (the Hound did before making some adjustments to include the Jewel), both have S+L base moves, so they will still be able to get to the treasure quickly enough.

Did you mean to leave out Unique Treasure? The contest states that you can have one in your fleet.
