I will be reworking some scenarios

Sadly, I will need to rework the First Anglo-Dutch War scenarios for Privateers Bounty. The issues are not the orders-of-battle, but simply the wind direction and ship placement. I have been digging out more information about the Battle of Portland (the "Three Days Battle"), and the consensus shows a different picture than that protrayed by Dr. Ballhausen.

The main difference is that George Monck's squadron was actually very far downwind from the main English body, and farther yet, from the Dutch. It took a very long time for that squadron to beat their way upwind to join the battle.
