Thanks, some valuable advice there. Had a lot of frustration with chain shot but figured it would be the best option; let's see how your suggestion of cannonballs works tonight :)

Let me know how you go, ball from the rear, aim right down the centre, aim at the crows nests if u can, it will take a few go's to get the hang of it, but when you do its very satisfying.

 

I still use chain out of my chasers when close persuit in PVP either running away or closing in as it does do more sail damage. But once you have equal speed, then ball from a stern rake will bring them masts down. And 1 mast down is often 30% of the speed taken...and given it takes 6-8 passes that usually means around 75% you will demast and at that point they will have < 50% sail.

 

Also ball seems alot more accurate and of course has alot me range.
