Not my wheelhouse so I thought I’d ask the knowledgeable collective!
A friend is interested in playing out games similar to and including the privateer raids on Nova Scotia, like the raid on Lunenburg (sp?) in 1782 (I think). He is looking for a ruleset that can cover both very small ship to ship actions (with ships that have like maybe 16 guns) as well as the land fights/looting. It sounds to me like he is looking for something kind of skirmishy with perhaps 60 figures on a side (for the land fights) and probably at 15mm-28mm.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I’ve had a lot of fun with Galleys and Galleons, which although slightly lighter in weight and slightly earlier in time period than your traditional game about the Revolution, but ought still to work pretty well.
