Since London is a dual port, connecting to both North Sea and North Atlantic zones. Can Germans do convoy intercept if they control the North Sea with a fleet on British convoys out of London that use the North Atlantic zone for convoy to France? Essentially, does a dual port count as a space in both naval zones and thus available to convoy intercept if that port space is used?

It does allow the use of both, but having a dual-port is an advantage, not a disadvantage. It allows a choice between routes. So - no.

This means that the Axis player(s) must grab a port in the NA before they can really open up a viable strategic naval campaign against the UK/US.

David – I’m glad Dan answered your question with a no. It makes perfect sense to me that the Brits can embark on a naval mission to either the North Sea zone or the North Atlantic zone because the London port is part of both zones (i.e. dual port). It doesn’t make sense to me however, that a German Fleet operating in the North Sea can just freely cruise on through the English Channel to intercept a UK Fleet on its way to France just because London straddles both sea zones.

A German fleet in the North Sea Zone Box can't Convoy Intercept a UK fleet coming out of London on its way to France.

That is correct.

That's exactly what I was saying. (Or at least tried to.)
