I saw this beauty in a french port, and such a beauty and rare sight she is that I couldn't resist boarding her right in front of the fort of Port-au-Prince. pounded her with my 4th rate 50 guns ship, then boarded her with a full 575 crew of sea dogs everything. costed me almost everyone but the hardiest fighter (only one survived) I brought with me. heavy loss, but gaining a class 1 Soleil Royal (not the quest one). Question is, I kept it, but is it worth it? he has 112 canons of 48, a speed of 10.50, a stagering of 1.50 for angle of sailing (basicaly I'm stuck in any but the rear wind) and a fairly good 14 for agility... Is she worth it? I can demolish any fort with that beast, but can't catch ships beside if I broadside them from close and hope they don't sink, then i can board them, but basically, they all outrun me if their sails survive the first broadside. What's the best strategy for sailing a class 1 ship? i usually use (and have only) 1 ship, aaaand I sold my 50 guns 4th rater on a whim that the soleil royal was too beautiful to park... Any tip or help would be appreciated!
