ship grapple <ship name>
Grappling another ship causes the two ships to be connected. Once grappled,
ships maintain the same speed and heading. You can board a grappled ship by
using "SHIP BOARD" at the side of the deck where the vessel is grappled.
Grappling is only possible when a ship has pulled alongside another ship. Once
alongside, someone on deck must use "SHIP GRAPPLE" It is also possible to
grapple two ships, one on each side of a vessel.
