Do you use the No-Duplicates rule? Most people do, so this fleet might not get a lot of attention.
|quote from The Pirate Code:|
|The No-Duplicates Rule|
-A player cannot have two or more of the same character, ship, sea creature, event token, or fort in their fleet at the same time unless it is captured from an opposing player. Generic crew and equipment are not limited in this way.
--Some characters have slight changes in the spelling of their names and/or different titles, but they are still considered the same character and cannot be used together unless they can be clearly identified otherwise.
--Some ships have the same or similar names but completely different physical configurations (different ship types, a different number of masts, etc.); these are not considered duplicates and may be used together.
--If two ships can be clearly identified as the same ship but at different points in its history they are considered duplicates and only one can be used within a fleet at any given time.
-Flavor text may be used for the purposes of determining whether two game pieces are duplicates. Since this only helps determine what can be included in a fleet and does not alter how the game is actually played, it is not a contradiction of the rule stating that flavor text has no effect on game play.
-If an ability or effect allows you to bring in a named crew, event token, or other game piece from outside of the game, you may choose one that was previously removed from the game or eliminated without violating the no-duplicates rule, provided that both “copies” of that game piece are not in your fleet at the same time.
-The no-duplicates rule applies to unique treasures only during setup, when placing them in the treasure pool. If an ability or effect allows you to bring in additional unique treasures, you may duplicate ones that are currently in play.
Also, it would be very useful to have a description where you explain the fleet and the strategy behind it rather than just pictures of the ships. (which we can see by clicking/hovering on them or using the expanded format)
I highly suggest adding crew to make the ships more effective.
