NO STRATEGY, JUST GIT RICH QUIK!!
Tribal Chieftain & Native Canoes
Masts: X (Canoes)
Native Canoe. When this ship carries no cargo, she gets +S to her base move.

|The goal was to add as many different types of keyword ship types as possible, right? Nice swarm fleet.|
Indeed. I simply used the search function to find the cheapest ship at each keyword, and then put them in the fleet. (Thus the Lightning not really being a creative choice, but thanks!) I did consider the Skipping Stone or HMS Hermes, but when I saw that the Grinder was not only the best Turbine, but also the cheapest, my decision was made easier. It was the cheapest I could have gone without adding a flotilla, which would have left room for more crew that I didn’t want to add. I felt like I was selling out a bit adding a gunship, but I would try to use the Grinder as a hybrid/escort.
This fleet started off as a complete joke, but once I realized that some of the cheapest ships of their type were actually among the best (Libellule and French canoes, etc), I realized that the fleet would turn out better than I had expected it to, hence adding the Grinder to optimize even more. And yes, Plague should be fun because I might even try to pass it off to my own ships on purpose since they don’t have any crew! (Not to mention the thought of a dismasted Grinder moving S+L with the plague as a perfect flavor touch)
