This fleet isn't so much designed as to celebrate International Nurse's Day as it is to circumvent and kill doctors. So... hmmm, uh... Yay nurses! I guess...

My original idea was to use El Neptuno for something like a Spanish Long Guns fleet. Use a Stinkpot Shot to cancel crew abilities at range, and then follow up with "eliminate one crew" abilities. But I wanted to include Nemesio Diaz to deal with enemy cancelers, and kept running out of room. So I substituted in El Alma. Doctor Urbano is there mostly just to satisfy the rules of the contest. I don't expect to use him all that much, and I'd much rather spend those points on another canceler.

To satisfy the marine/musketeer requirement, I went with the cheapest musketeer available: Trevor Van Tyne from RotF. The HMS Phoenix is there to peck away at range. The Stinkpot Shot only has a 1 in 6 chance of working at 2L, but if it does, I believe I can use the same shot to eliminate a crew, using Thomas Gunn the Younger's ability.

If the enemy ship has a canceler aboard, then charge in with El Alma. The cancelers should cancel each other, and then a hit with the Stinkpot should get rid of any defensive crew abilities. After a couple hits with a Stinkpot + Silva/Gunn, the doctor should either be gone or have nothing left to protect.

I like all your ideas! Great fleet!
The only remark, is that, well, this fleet does exactly the opposite of what a doctor should do...
Well, anyway, great work! A 4, from me.

ciao! Fede

Its air-tight. I think Gunn works with Stinkpot Shot. I had to really think about it, but I think it works.

Its a shame you had to put so many cancellers on Alma. If you weren't going up against an IND fleet, would you put that many on there?

Actually, the dead weight was the doctor. I'd glady trade that 5 points for another canceler. Cancel is a powerful ability, and as more keywords get added to the game, it becomes more and more useful. I've never tried to put multiple cancelers into a fleet, but it sounds like it'd be a really good idea. At the time, I was just trying to figure out how to counter Submarine + Marine + Cancel, but now it's hard to think of a scenario where multiple cancels wouldn't be useful. But I'm not entirely sure what happens if you have two cancel abilities on the same ship and one of them gets canceled. Can the 2nd canceler then use its ability, or was it canceled along with the first ability?

I hadn't realized that El Alma and El Tirador were such good Spanish ships. El Tirador in particular looks like quite a bargain. I'll have to consider including them in more Spanish fleets.
