Challenge of Snails: Broadside Heaven

CoS: Broadside Heaven

This is for Nemo’s Challenge of Snails fleet contest.
My favourite ship of all time is the HMS Lord Algernon, and although not usually very practical, this is a good chance for me to include her. The defensive ability helps the Algernon early on, while the Galapagos’ ability is possibly even more important, giving her a distinct advantage in this particular contest (at least until she gets hit).

The Lord Algernon will be helped by the SAT, with a better chance of success due to Doone. She can be the escort, or sink any enemy ships that have a hold full of gold.

The Galapagos goes out at S+L and takes the best two treasure from two islands.

I originally had both as gunships, but saw a decent opportunity (with Ismail) to have a balance. The biggest vulnerability is when the Galapagos gets hit. Then my gold-running strategy dies quickly. As usual, crew-killers also pose a threat. The Algernon especially can’t afford to lose any crew.
