I agree with all of that. Although in my opinion, I'd think they'd have to do a bit of editing with the island's geometry to make it look possible for a pair of War Frigates to be able to sail through the channel side-by-side without scraping the edges of the rocks anyway. 'Cause then that'd be a waste of four Dreadnoughts.

But then, they seemingly have enough wood to rebuild them anyway.

Having the entire thing's difficulty-per-section be determined by the average notoriety level of the crew on the Pearl would probably be one of the best, if not the best, solution indeed.

One thing I forgot to bring up about the Goliath though - does she really have 18 guns? I would assume the Navy Officers in the opening cutscene mean per-side, which would make more sense than overall. But it doesn't seem right to me.

Despite what the cutscene may suggest, she doesn't have 18 guns, but instead 16. 9 broadside cannons and 7 Deck cannons. Real shame that they messed that one up, too.

I think even in the old days, though, the Goliath may have been two cannons short. Odd, that. But oh well.
