I don't think they used river boats in the Napoleonic wars.

An idea could be a gamemode within the Naval section similar to that of Battlefield 2142. A titan mode if you will, could have 4 frigates per team and also a 1st rate ship of the line for each team as its 'titan' or 'Flagship' to be more in tune. That ship would be the enemy teams target to destroy. Either by Destroying the Flagship or boarding and capturing it perhaps by raising your colours your team wins the game. May require a sizeable amount of players but that depends on the games desired size, could use a 2nd/3rd maybe even a 4th rate as the flagship and maybe even drop down to 6th rates as the main team size

Haven't you ever heard of the Battle of the River Severn? What a bloody battle it was. River boats on each side rowing.

Didn't do much else really.

I'm personally looking forward more to the sloops-of-war than frigates or ships of the line. Ships we could reasonably crew fully to their historical complement.

This is my favorite ship. Santisima Trinidad. Biggest ship afloat in 1790s and first ship of the line.

Couldnt find good pictures on Google. But this should be it.
