I know this didn't exist when this guide was written, but I feel the need to point it out - you know you can turn autosails off, right?

I don't want to hear "it keeps giving me left turns!" in a five-hour seabattle ever again.

It's called rams. When ships hit things, it hurts.

Arr, I practice this often...
When I solo in me grand frigate, I will ram a sloop or Cutter and board it.

I don't need to load all those guns or anything; one good collision is enough te wipe them all out by meself (with a handful of bots)

Some members of my crew and I have been wondering if the length of battle has any say on how much booty is given at the end of battle.

I don't think the length of battle affects the booty.

Not that i know of, though the longer the battle does effect the Bnavers bnav rank so could effect the amount one when they loose or gain rank.

Bigger ships give much more damage when they ram than smaller ships. (Same as IRL)

Aye.

Since this has been bumped, I would like to ask: is there a more recent bnav tips thread? The OP here is quite outdated now.
