Please consider giving all players working together and ships the ability to nest. Nesting (or Rafting Up a more modern term) is a real world and viable capability for ships working together to actually come close to one another, put over lines and send items to one another. Another way to look at nesting is it is an at sea or "sea to sea" transfer ability. For example, a group of ships operating together can nest or raft up, and exchange or share hull or rig repairs, rum, crew and even other items deemed capable of being transferred. Additionally, items brought from port for the purpose of supporting at sea operations are able to be moved from one ship to another without, repeat without returning to port. One of the most important capabilities of nesting or rafting up is it keeps ships at sea without the need to return to port to fetch more repairs. That is, it keeps them in the fight for a longer period of time. Since we have the ability to loot another ship after it has been sunk, nesting could become another option from that part of the software. Instead of pressing X to loot, a player could press another key that asks if he or she wants to nest with the other ship or ships. Did the ships of Naval Action really nest in the real world, yes they did. The accompanying picture shows a group of sailing ships nested. Yes they are at anchor but doing it underway was more than possible, it was done. However, it did require really careful seamanship. Thanks for your attention to this matter.
