Serapis_1, with battle damage, removing the main sail, the jib, and the spanker. The spanker is removed because the ship is unsailable with it, at least in this simulation.
|Serapis_2, with additional battle damage, removing the topgallant on the foremast, and reducing the size of the other sails on the foremast to 50% to account for damage inflicted by Alliance.|
