General Information

Description

While the name may be cute and unusual, the Pickle is a good beginner ship with good sailing qualities and 12 guns.

Small and maneuverable, the Pickle is a good beginner ship after the Cutter and Lynx. She carries the same amount of guns as the Privateer. Although her hull is a little taller, this also make her crew less exposed to grape shot when fighting against other fore-and-aft rigged ships. Also, the Pickle has good downwind sailing characteristics for her class, and will be able to outrun most other smaller vessels when sailing downwind.

In her sailing profile it is immediately apparent is the odd nature of the Pickle's sailing capabilities. Fastest on point 90 in a similar way to similarly sized ships, she is not as strong as the other ships of her class around point 45. However, she makes up for this by being a decent sailer anywhere beyond a beam reach all the way up to running with the wind in her back. This sailing profile is unique for the unrated vessels and thus the Pickle will likely catch most other ships her class when sailing with the wind behind her beam. However, she should be wary of square-rigged vessels such as the Snow and the brigs, as they will outperform her on these points. Yet against these, the Pickle still retains the speed at a beam reach to escape. In this sense, the Pickle will often be able to avoid danger either by escaping at a beam reach from square-rigged vessels such as the Brig, or by escaping with the wind in her back against fore-and-aft rigged vessels like the Lynx or Privateer.
