I've just been reading about Finnish Merchant line owner Gustav Erikson, who owned a freighter line using sailing ships until the early 1950s. checking up I then found that three of his ships were sunk in ww2.

Killoran

was sunk by the German merchant/cruiser commerce raider Widder in august 1940.
and Penang

was torpedoed by U140.
Six others survived the war.
Wouldn't it be nice I thought, to have a chance to re-enact these events and have a few sailing freighters in SH3?
