Nimrod Specs: cost us L1000 from the junk heap, a gem that looked way worse than it was considering Covington’s repair capability. Repairs took less time than quoted to us. Crammond used some pull for us out of friendship to get us access to inexpensive used parts from junk heaps and the like at the military base. There are many problems still that are cosmetic now but will create real problems over time, especially on the hull and internally (sanding, grinding, rust removal, welding, replacement parts) that will cost another L500 over the next year or it will cause penalties or fall apart.

In day travel, small bonus by helmsman and disadvantage/adv for sailors. In tactical, its the opposite. Less than 10 is minus 1, 11 to 20 is 0, above 20 is a plus 1.
