Let me tell you about the Battle for Penn Cove. In 1845 two adventuress Salty Dogs known as Cpt Whidbey & Cpt Jack had a shootout that lasted 2 days.
The 2 ships - on the R Cpt Jack and L Cpt Whdbey. It started one foggy morning.
Cpt Jack had the lighter smaller but quicker ship.
Cpt Whidbey could not maneuver as well as Cpt Jack but had a very strong hull.
How the heck did those sailboats get in this pic?
Cpt Jack got off the first cannon shot BOOM.
Cpt Whidbey fired back BOOM BOOM.
OK what the heck is going on - I am PG and need to start nesting soon.
Jack fires a long shot - Looks like he is on target. No he missed.
Cpt whidbey is sailing towards Cpt Jack to ram him.
Another cannon BLAST from Cpt Jack. But Cpt Whidbey keeps advancing.
