Am I correct in thinking only "British Forces" may attack prize ships? That prize ships may not be Intercepted! by warships or raiders?

And, as you probably already realize, the British Forces can only intercept RECOGNIZED Prize Ships.

The 16th century São João Baptista, also known as Botafogo (Spitfire) was a Portuguese galleon warship considered the most powerful warship in the world at the time.

Prize ships do not have a status of recognized or unrecognized, they can always be atacked

Interesting - - - What is your source for this ruling, Mario?

If this were true I doubt anyone would ever play 'Boarding Party'.

I'll try to find support for my opposite belief when I'm home with the rulebook.

No, I am wrong, indeed prize ships must be recognized to be intercepted.
Because prize ships are captured merchant ships, I assumed that they are always recognized, which is not correct.

This still seems more logic to me.... but the rules are indeed clear.

I think the point is that prize ships (and raiders) are not necessarily flagged "correctly" in terms of what nationality they are. Thus, a Norwegian ship captured by a raider continues on it's way but to a German port instead of it's normal destination. Until an Allied force figures out that it's no longer controlled by the Norwegians (goes from unrecognized to recognized), it's friendly from their perspective.
