"Wars are lost and won with logistics," he nodded. "And the academies try and beat that into cadet heads."

"Supplies can make or break everything. Too much, where do you put it all? Not enough, how can you eat or build? Late, you cant complete your job and you have angry customers and empty bellies. Non arrival, now you have to reorder and track done your goids.

"How supplies at sea can make or break your mission," he replied.

"What was the topic of your speech" she asked interested. Both of the ways he mentioned meeting her mother made perfect sense. She attended many of the star ceremonies and was commander of the Academy. And yet, he blushed so deeply at the mention of her that Tamalyn wasn't sure what to make of it.

He looked a bit overwhelmed and blushed deeply. "There are ways to fight boredom," he replied, his voice a bit unsteady. "And there is scouting ashore we can do, like where we see smuggler's marks. The ships will always be targets, so we take steps to protect them as we deny any hostile use of the rivers. I always miss the sea when I'm ashore, but at least I'm on water. And, yes, I have had the honor of meeting your mother," his blush was even deeper. "She was at the celebration when I passed through my first Star ceremony and when I spoke at the Academy."

Tamalyn nodded, "I do not think the past problems were with the river fleet, I think it was with Army officers who could not think outside of the box. I think it will be incredibly useful to have a river fleet. My concerns are that it will become monotonous traveling up and down the river; eventually the land pirates will attempt to sabotage the fleet; or they will avoid the rivers leaving you nothing to do but move cargo. Do you think you will miss the ocean? What drew you to boats? Do you know my mother?"

"I could be recalled to the navy and my time would still advance as normal," he replied. "I might stay at my current rank here for years, but jump a few when I returned to the fleets. I accepted it because it was a challenge," he shrugged and looked around the deck. It is something that has been tried and didn't work, and I think it is workable. It is all a matter of working with the army and seeing where what we can do compliments what they need to do. Like move troops quickly with their supplies and saving wear on their horses."

"Not the first time, that was a passenger ship designed to accommodate wealthier travelers. My second voyage was on a Bragg ship in the winter from Waldenburg to Valcaster, it was not a pleasant journey. I have not actually been on a strictly merchant class vessel, though both carried goids of one sort or another. I have dealt with merchant lines frequently, I just do not usually have time to actually sail. And honestly, that trip from Waldenburg was enough to make me be too busy even if I wasn't" she smiled. "Does this position permanently remove you from the navy? Do you maintan your naval standings? Why did you accept this position?" She asked him in her usual multiple questions.

He coughed and made an odd throat-clearing nose and smiled, bowing slightly. She felt him wrap himself in the armor of duty and gestured forward. "Your highness, these ships started as coastal vessels, the bottom...hull... is more rounded and the bow more bluff, the curve of the bow cuts through the water, but in the open sea they were prove to be tossed all about by heavy waves. But in the fiver, they skim along quite nicely. Catwalks have been added along the sides to allow us to pole against the current, or under bridges if we have to unstep the masts to get below them. I am assured that the bridges will all be rebuilt to allow them to draw up the centers, which will allow us to sail through and make them less easy for enemies to use." He pointed about the, "In the ocean my ship would be considered a 4th rate, based upon it's size. It carries a crew of a hundred and twenty, with nine hundred tons of supplies aboard we can operate for years without support if needed. We carry a dwarven great ballista, 2 heavy dwarven ballistae, 4 dwarven ballistae and eight light dwarven balliastae, and sixteen great crossboaws, allowing us a great deal of persuasion in any fight. We also have a large store of longbows aboard for on deck, and we maintain shortbows for work in the rigging." Just ahead are the heads, but you won't want to see that. There is also the pump, where we can rig for hose baths and do so fairly regularly, a clean crew is a happy crew. We do rig sheets when the ladies bathe, to block the view." He coughed again and blushed. We have the wardrobe, which you saw, just behind it are my sea cabin, and those of the ship's captain, and both of our first officers. At sea I would be a commodore, with a flag captain to command my flagship, we obviously operate differently here."

He took her below and they saw the mess deck, that doubled as a surgery in battle, as well as berthing for the bulk of the crew in hammocks, that were essentially side-by-side, with scant clearance for the one above you, they slept three deep. He showed her the holds and various lockers for things like rope and chain, the large copper water tanks, and a variety of other rooms, all small and he hand to bend over to enter them all, even his own cabin, he assured her, but didn't offer her a tour of that.

"The rest of the ships, are similar, but smaller, and with even less head room in most cases. The Supply ships are build more for comfort, they are of merchant design, not navy, and carry much more cargo, but to a savings in weight from a much thinner hull. Your own seaborne travel, I assume was on a merchant vessel?" His voice wavered a bit as he shifted the topic away from duty.

She had been paying attention to the discussion until she felt him. She paused and turned her full attention on Taraborne. She watched him for a moment longer than she normally would. When she realized that he noticed her attention she turned back to paying attention to Malea and the others.

When they were preparing to disembark Tamalyn trailed behind and paused by Taraborne. "It was interesting to see your ship, I would like to visit some of the other varieties as well. I have never sailed on a river ship" she added. She wasn't sure what exactly she had felt. It confused her that her mother was so much a part of his feelings. Perhaps he liked her and just felt Tamalyn was a way to get to her.
