Last night, while I was out sailing a curious thing happened.

After a quick trip 'around the horn' of Doctor O's island, I was heading back to Port Babbage when I suddenly noticed a side-wheel ironclad bearing down on me. I really did not think much of it until it fired on me. I would not stand for being attacked in an unprovoked manner in open seas, so I went to flank speed and turned to face this aggressor. It was a rough fight, full of maneuvers, and jockeying for shots. He had two single gun turrets, I have a casemate with 7 guns. it was a fierce fight, but in the end I prevailed.

(thanks to Mr Wemyss for putting up a good fight, and to the audience we managed to attract. I hope it was as fun to watch as it was to sail. But, in retrospect...it was much tougher to maneuver for broadside shots. Perhaps a dual turret monitor is in my future....)
