Ability: Marine. Each turn, one of this ship’s crew cannot use their abilities. You may make a different choice each turn.
Link: HMS Sirius, Scarborough, HMS Gorgon

I know this is kinda bizarre, but you’ll understand his negative ability if you read up on him. Might be worth 3 since you could just “cancel” your own oarsman/shipwright/etc until you needed them, but I’m very tempted to just start pricing Marine at 4 rather than 5 (Wizkids’ 6 is ridiculous), in which case I think the negative is worth maybe -2. Definitely the type of crew you’d want on a high cargo gunship with crew to spare.  He’d probably just be dumped on an island to avoid the negative, but he would quarrel with people on the way there.  XD
