This squad of English ships are the only ships with the EA ability in the English fleet. They can do a lot of things, like a Swiss Army Knife.

1. HMS Titan
The gunship of the fleet. Thomas Gunn , Griffin , and Commodore Rhys Gryffyn Owen make up the important named crew and a shipwright, firepot specialist, and oarsman complete the group.

2. HMS Europa
This ship is the gold runner of the fleet. First Mate Ismail gives it a extra cargo space and with the extra action capability this ship should do okay bringing gold in. The oarsman allows the Europa to move when in a pickle.

3. HMS Algiers
Good multipurpose ship. Hermione Gold , helmsman, and oarsman make up the crew for the fighting role, and you can ship her out (no pun intended) empty with the Europa to bring in an island's worth of gold (if you play with 4 coins on each island)

The Titan covers the other two ships, and after the first gold haul, the Algiers fits up for the secondary gunship role to help the Titan. Fort Brompton is a good way station for the gold runners to stop at. Hidden Cove helps get the Europa out to an island lightning fast.

Hope you enjoy!

It's decent, but I think of true hybrids (like HMS Dover , HMS Cumberland , HMS Gibraltar ) as more of a "Swiss army knife". The Europa and Algiers cost 20 points for 3 total cargo spaces, so I don't normally use either of them for gold.

The Titan is set up to be absolutely devastating, but I think the gold game could struggle. Also, the Algiers already has 2L cannons and you're only getting the world hater bonus on 2 cannons there (compared to 5 for the Titan, well worth it), so I'd rather see a captain/reroller like Lord Thomas Gunn on the Algiers (helping with the EA's) with the RotF HGold on the Titan.

Also I missed this the first time, but the oarsman on the Europa would take up cargo space since the "takes up no cargo space" can't stack with Ismail.

Any thoughts on editing or testing this?
