What is the basic movement speed for galleys? Page 38 has the movement rules for galleys but doesn't specify thei basic speed. Nor is it found on page 13 in the movement list. Is there an errata somewhere?
When patrol markers are first put on the table, should they all be on the same spot (in a pile) or can they be placed individually as long as none break the 12"rule for separation?

My problem with this is that a square rigged ship shouldn't be able to sail so close to the wind in any event. Being taken aback would also be the consequence of a severe failure to tack successfully. So I understand what you have told me but I can't see how it relates to the reality of sailing a sq...
I understand the wording of the rule for sailing into the wind and being taken aback, but I don't understand the circumstances under which this could happen.

Just been reading up and the Mitrailleuse had a ROF of 100rpm and the gatling 400+rpm, so not really comparable weapons. Also, mitrailleuse was deployed well out of range of Prussian rifle fire. Better range was its perhaps minor advantage.significantly it was didscarded at the end of the war.
