Lede

  • Per Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lead section, the lede of this article stands alone as a concise overview and summary of the article. The lede defines the naval engagement, establishes context for the naval engagement, explains why the naval engagement is notable, and summarizes the most important points of the naval engagement.
  • The info box is beautifully-formatted and its contents are sourced from internally-cited references.
  • The image of HMS Ethalion in action is releasable to the public domain and is therefore free to use here.
  • Great Britain should be written as such throughout the article for consistency's sake.
  • Done when referring to the political entity, not when referring to the island.
  • The lede is well-written, its contents are cited below within the text, the references are verifiable, and I have no further comments or suggestions for this section.

Background

  • This section is well-written, its contents are cited below within the text, the references are verifiable, and I have no comments or suggestions for this section.

Chase

  • An image of HMS Naiad (1797) should be included in this section for aesthetics.
  • The only image of this ship is in a post-Trafalgar context from 1805 and Naiad isn't the biggest ship in the image so using it here might be misleading.--Jackyd101 (talk) 21:23, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Consider renaming the section "Pursuit," although this is merely a suggestion.
  • This section is otherwise well-written, its contents are cited below within the text, the references are verifiable, and I have no comments or suggestions for this section.

Battle

  • This section is well-written, its contents are cited below within the text, the references are verifiable, and I have no comments or suggestions for this section.

Aftermath

  • This section is well-written, its contents are cited below within the text, the references are verifiable, and I have no comments or suggestions for this section.
