This is simply a fleet that is designed to not die. Everything in the fleet is based on surviving through hell and back. The main goal is to keep the ships afloat and keep the crew alive. Before continuing, I will admit that this fleet has two major weaknesses: Stinkpot Stuff and cancellers.

Here is the setup for each of the ships:

Delusion
-Eternal
-Ghost Ship (can't be rammed or boarded)
-Can't sink (Davy Jones copies the Republique's ability)
-Cancelling (Papa Doc)
-Fear (can act as a secondary canceller)
-Shipwright ability
-Third potential cancelling action with Stinkpot Shot
-Oarsman (prevents capture and scuttling)
-Fantasma is immortal (he is there for thematic reasons and can represent Captain Salazar from Dead Men Tell No Tales)

Papa Doc
RtSS-028b, Common
Cursed
Points: 8

Ability: This ship gets +1 to her boarding rolls. Once per turn, one crew or ship within S of this ship can’t use its ability that turn.

Concordia
-Built in offensive ability
-Eternal
-Oarsman (prevents capture and lets the ship shoot 5 cannons with no masts, must be eliminated for capture)
-Crew cannot be eliminated (lol)
-Most offensive ship in the fleet (EA + reroll w/captain and helmsman)

Mercury
-Submarine
-Ignores first hit w/ all hull pieces
-Eternal
-Cancelling
-Oarsman prevents capture
-Crew cannot be eliminated

La Republique
-Can't sink (but "can be scuttled")
-Oarsman prevents capture and dereliction, and therefore the ship can't be scuttled (lol)
-Cancelling
-Perfect combo because Ex-Patriot wouldn't work with Eternal anyway, and ship provides Davy Jones with an ability to copy for a cheap point cost

The point total quickly escalated above what I had originally intended, and the Republique and Davy Jones weren't part of my original idea. At 160 points, your opponent could certainly craft a fleet that could take this apart, but it would still be incredibly annoying to deal with.

With this fleet I have passed lordstu at 82-81 total fleets, and I think I have the most fleets ever submitted here.

Great song and I love how you tied it in with this fleet's various abilities.

Thanks! It was very fun to make, back when I was still high on the PotC hype/craze heh. It's funny, the first time I saw that preview for the movie I didn't love how they used a non-PotC song (with vocals, too), but now I love that preview and have more appreciation for the song. This is also a good example of the theme-heavy fleet.
