Small victory today.  Faced with small complication.  Easily overcome with 90% efficiency.  Voyage going well.  Spirits high.

We'll reach the shipping lanes in about a week.  We should be able to stalk, trap, and raid one of the treasure ships before the end of the month.  The first mate had an excellent idea when we were making preparations to get underway.  When we reach our target area, we'll switch out our usual sails for specially made, sky-blue colored sails.  We should be able to scout targets more easily if they can't see our pearl-white sails on the horizon.

We'll pillage a ship or two, hit port, and raise hell.  That should pacify the crew.
