Do you house rule that Turtle ships can’t have their masts rammed off while they still have panels?

In general yes.  In fact my Basic Rules do away with ram damage altogether.  Opal Shrine not Shine.

Type: Ship
Faction Affiliation: French
Rarity: LE
Point Value: 44
Number of Masts: 10
Cargo Space: 5
Base Move: L
Cannons: 2S-4L-3L-3L-3L-4S-4L-4L-3S-3S
Ability: Junk. Grapple Shot. This ship can shoot at submerged ships within S of her. This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against non-French/English/Spanish/American/Dutch targets. Specialist crew take up no cargo space on this ship.
Link: Jean-Claude DuPierre

Flavor text: Judging by her name, it is no surprise that the French have used this monstrosity for warfare only. Designed to combat all the scourges of the seven seas, the Queenstorm is equipped with both the artillery and ammunition to put an end to criminality. However, her crew are not prepared to deal with the complex international relations that their “enemies” have formed in the buildup to the grand war of the age….

Jean-Claude DuPierre
Type: Crew
Faction Affiliation: French
Rarity: LE
Point Value: 8
Ability: Loyal: France. Hostile: Pirate, Cursed, Barbary Corsair, Jade Rebellion, Viking, Mercenary. Captain. Broadsides Attack. This ship gets +1 to her boarding rolls.
Link: Queenstorm

Flavor text: With rigid discipline, Capitaine DuPierre keeps his ship ready for combat at all times during every mission. His hatred of scoundrels is becoming legendary. He can be a bit chaotic, sometimes manning a massive 42 pounder on the lower gun deck, and other times leading his men in a courageous boarding party.

Not the best combo, but that’s not really the point. What fun will be had….
