I just tried the real tactics at the start of Portland

I just got done reading about the start of the Battle of Portland. Essentially, the Dutch ran before he wind, straight at the leading English ships. I just turned the Dutch loose, with little maneuvering. They were grouped, initially, into four squadrons. I just let it go, and when I shut the simulation down, the English had 95% left while the Dutch had been reduced to 87%. I still can't conceive of how, in the Privateers Bounty, you could use the real Dutch tactics, and be as aggressive. You will be shot to pieces, if you try.
