Nice article on Naval Warfare in the Crusades
From War and Game. Nice article. Some of the rules that I have seen and played over the years that would cover this (if anyone is interested) were Sluys (part of Medieval Tactica), and also My Galley Sally (from the Limeys and Slimeys folks, if I recall, and it covered ancient galleys and also the more medieval type).
I used to own, but never had the courage to play, Bireme & Galley. Much more to my liking (and something I played a lot of) was Ram Speed from Metagaming. If I were ever to do it again, I would definitely use the terrific paper miniatures from Eric Hotz, at his Roman Seas website.
