If your ship goes 24" and the raft trying to board it goes 9" then there's no point in playing in the first place. If your ships go too much faster than your minifigs then it takes away a lot of cool positioning tactics as well.

Well yes, which is why I wanted them fairly similar in speed.

That's why I'm thinking 10" for the Bounty and 12" for the Party Raft, giving us eleven turns while the extra two inches will allow the Raft to catch up if it misses on the first pass.

As for positioning, I thought it was obvious that this is a high speed boat chase scenario, with falling off a boat being pretty much fatal and the Sea of Wood may be brown but that doesn't mean it's actually wood...

Alright, I was able to take an overview picture now that I have an idea what speeds to use, so speak up if you have any issue with how fast the boats will go while I'll try to post it...

Minifigs will get left behind at almost any speed, they're very slow swimmers (and they sink automatically in Armor). I'm thinking more about a situation like where the raft is so fast that it can switch sides of the ship every turn faster than the minifigs on deck trying to defend it.

Well if I had a bigger Raft or didn't have to stuff the one I had with such odd minifigs, maybe...

...But right now I have a guy with a snake butt hanging off the one side.
Best to force some of them onto the much bigger Bounty and let it work itself out.

Alright, updated the OP since I doubt we'll get two more, so while I'll take control of Sensei U that leaves Lord G open.

Hoping for someone who can use his Staff of Kreation for maximum lulz.
