Also, underrated bit about the Corsairs is since they’re all galleys, you can’t tow them since they’re never derelict.
That’s only the case if you have an oarsman aboard. It’s a bit awkward, but the updated Oarsman keyword does not apply (Page 32) to the rowing ship type keywords. It’s a bit confusing, but I think it’s for the best because otherwise the rowing ship types would be more difficult to capture than they should be. (you’d need a canceller to knock out the ship type keyword) It would make Galleys a bit overpowered for their cost, although Longships and Turtle Ships are already more expensive than they need to be.
I think it would be interesting to have a house rule allowing you the option to shoot the oars off a galley by targeting them – if both sets get shot off, the ship loses access to the keyword for good. However, that would be a bit strange as well since then they’d be able to do ram damage. XD
