Gulf patrol for the coast of the United states of America, into the Gulf of Mexico.

Nov 31 1799: It is fine weather , with strong breeze from the west , we are heading to the Keys , on sick call is Hommer Fitzmauris age 14 with a splitter that gone putrid, Dyke Ecchlin with vomiting of blood and other vial torments. when the Crewmen Twisdin Stritch spotted an un- marked Ship, heading south. We are going to try to hail her and see the make of her Crew and Captain.

The young crew man William Butler hosted the Colors.

The helms men Christopher Holms set the ship near the drink and lose all speed as the un-mark ship gets away under I am sure near 14 knots. I well reprimand the helmsmen later.

The Crew is left to tend the wash and swab. And I well continue to look out for the un-marked ship.

It has been brought to my attention that some members of the Crew have brought aboard some homebrew swell, so I have reduced rum rations till the swell is turned in to the ships Churgeon Deboise.

Seven days later a

Dec 7th brief storm crosses our path three men are injured, storm duration five hours

Four bottle of homebrew where turned into the doctor, tomorrow I well return the rations to standard cup and throw the bottle overboard!

Dec 9th encountered an adult sea serpent , it eat poor Crewmen Drake Cantston age 16, crew repelled serpent while Crewmen W. Butler shot it in the Eye with issued Carbine rifle.

I awarded W. Butler extra rum ration tonight for his markmenship.

The Brigantine was a type of ship used in large numbers, both as a Merchant vessel and as a Naval Ship. It carried 16 guns and was rigged for speed, having both Top gallant sails and royals.

These ships were used by Navies of the World for scouting and reconnaissance duties. They were used to track down ships of an enemy. Many of the Brigs of the late 18th century could carry sweeps for maneuvering in still weather. In 1814 the British Navy had 71 brigs of various types carrying 10 to 16 guns.

Well in the world of 1799 in alternate world as it where, black plague, way back took out most males , so the need for labor pool and due issue of the church and Joan of Arc Winning against the English , the pope <french> declare Women to be equal among men, (to save Joan from social and political issue) this started the equal rights movement as it where early with legal rights followed so as to own land instead of male hair, because of Elizabethan Laws and issues to change her own Hersey as it where.

well with my Daughter off to The far north and my son off to visit family in the far south , it leave me with out the group as it where- so there well be a month interruption till we came again. but as it where I got the links form the internet for ranks and information for the information for the game, it might be a cool for some day for some one to do a wars at sea book for brp. because it the lease game ed are in most games, but sense the Movies going with the pirates of the . . . . . series then you can see their are interest. there was more thing to worries then Pirates- with storms, sea serpents and other countries privateers.

Looks seriously cool! Looking forward to the next Log entry :)

I picked this up a while back - http://www.ospreypublishing.com/store/American-Heavy-Frigates-1794%E2%80%931826_9781841766300

Osprey have lots and lots of interesting-looking stuff. Problem is, there's so much of it...

I'm planning on picking up Renaissance Deluxe and I'm backing the Pirates & Dragons KS. Between these two books, how much "ships stuff" is in there?

In Renaissance Deluxe there are compact, abstract rules for ship combat and sea travel (2 pages of rules, and a few other passing references), but there isn't close detail on the various ship types, etc. Pirates & Dragons will contain a lot more information and "ships stuff" :)
