That is a very possible event. I like the concept. The idea is a good one. But! This line has me troubled. They have 5 gundecks and carry 20 stationary ballista implacements and 4 rotating catapult implacements I have no problem with catapults. That is one of the main staples of warfare, in those days. But anything with guns scares me. These are primitive times, a gundeck and ballista implacements seems a bit over the top. It's excellent though.

I think Ballistas would be fine. They're pretty much giant crossbows, at least very similar. Doesn't take a genius to say "Hmm, if this crossbow were only 500 times bigger...". Not all that far from the catapult on the tech scale either.

They have 5 gundecks and carry 20 stationary ballista implacements and 4 rotating catapult implacements.

 In the 1600's french Marquis started using gunpowder in the form of cannon's against other ships which still were using balista, catapults, etc.
 This made the captains of the other ships, mad in an inhumane sort of way. The french were not being fair so to speak. They replaced their balista's and catapults with cannons too, and henceforth the cannon's were then on called balista's.

My Bad :(

I saw the gundeck word and I assumed.

NOTE: When ships were making the transition to cannons. It was not uncommon for them to have all three type's of weapons aboard.
