Can Spain spring deploy loaned galleons to the treasure fleet escort? The rules seem to imply they can. Could Spain use this to transfer ships in and of out the med for France?

Interesting. I can find nothing in the rules that prohibits this.

No this is not permissible. It would leave a number of questions about how/when they return to their owners.

Shucks. But can you explain them, Ed?

I don't think Spain would have wanted to trust the treasure shipments to a bunch of seamen from another land ... nor would those guys wanted to have operated so far from home. So plenty of good reasons this should be disallowed.

Always makes my day when there's a good historical explanation!
