    "Fire!" Smithy yelled down the main hatch, and in seconds the ship rumbled with the blast of her broadside. A violent shudder swept her from stem to stern, testing each creaking timber. Choking plumes of smoke drifted over the deck. Coughing, Kent peered through the acrid fog toward their enemy......Kent scanned the deck for Sawkins. He was nowhere to be seen. the sound of splitting wood drew his attention back to the sloop, visible now through the clearing smoke. Her foremast toppled in shattered fragments of spiked oak. The yards and shrouds hanging in a snarled web on the deck......A ghostly silence yawned across her deck as a white flag rose on her mainmast. Not a living soul was in sight.......*The Restitution*.....cool :o)
