While running my Battle of the Sound scenario, I conducted my most successful fireship attack, to date. I sailed the four Dutch fireships at the Swedish northernmost squadron, and set at least two ships afire. I was surprised, as well, that mostly Swedish ships caught on fire, from gunfire, and perhaps only one Dutch ship, the Noorderkwartier ship, the Eendracht (38 guns).
I set up the scenario with the four fireships together, at the rear of Pieter Florissen's "Rear" squadron, all sailing to the Southwest.
