We had sailed six long days from port on to the open seas hunting for our quarry. Our vessel, the Red Wraith, was a huge monstrosity better suited to shore bombardment than extended hunts for pirates on open waters. The higher ups never pay attention to lowly gunner’s crewman however. They wanted a boat as show of force and our Captain Fletcher had answered the call of duty. Our highly valued mission was to hunt down and sink the wretched vessel that hunted British vessels in these death infested waters. I didn’t care for our cause, I loaded cannons. They can shoot them at whoever they want.
