I suggest that since quite a few people say "oh - yes - it *would* be nice
to have a naval sim", it would be worth creating a SourceForge account and
publicising it to lists like this one to see if you can get some help.

Unfortunately, I'm not one of them - I never could get into naval sims.

I'd like to do a Greek Trireme battle sim though - archers and catapults,
ramming, grappling hooks, boarding, exploding 'Greek-fire' pots, oarsmen,
sails, that kind of thing.  I was a great fan of a boardgame called 'Trireme'
back in the mid 1970's - and I've yet to see a half-decent computer-based
game around the same theme.

<sigh>  So many projects, so little time!
