If Sails of Glory has a hexagonal board, and its ships cover two hexes length and only 1 wide, then yes, you could do this. Or, if you wish to use the SoG ships, do they fit on the WS&IM board? If they take up no more room than the WS&IM counters, then again, yes, you can.

You could probably do it with a hex size of 75mm (distance between parallel sides, NOT points).

Seascape mats in this scale are available here....

(Note: SoG ships are, I believe 1:1000 scale)

Do you own a tennis court, football pitch or ice rink?

You'd need a lot of space to field a large armada... If you're just doing two on two or three on three, then you may be ok as long as the combatants are close in proximity.

Absolutely.

I bought x2 Sea Blue Game Mat (45x72 Inches) with 2 Inch Hexes from Hotz Artworks. It's great!

Agree. I purchased a 60" x 90" (152.4cm x 228.6 cm) sea mat with 2" (5.08cm) hexes from [url=http://www.corseceng.com/ocean]Corsec Engineering[url]. Shipping is a little expensive to France, but it fits the ship bases perfectly.





And also works great with Check Your 6!.
