Personally I feel that the current system of your ship automatically sinking during a battle is not very historical. If you could no longer fight your ship and keep her afloat, you would lower your colours and all crew members would turn to save the ship and their lives. (Striking) If you were able to save your ship, you then had options depending on the local activity. Taken by a prize crew and captured, await end of the battle for friendly assistance, limp off of the battlefield and make course for a friendly port, Raise your ensign and renew hostilities etc. All of these occurred historically, what didn't occurr was that all vanquished ships sink, in fact very few did within the timescale of a battle. Exchange of captured crewmen follwing battle arranged by admiralty authorities etc. There have been other posts on the subject, there have I believe been some poll's in the past and without belittling any previous posts, I think we have a much larger forum population now and many many more players who could provide input. Multiple choice, you may tick as many options as you feel could be viable
