In the latter part of 1728, a Spanish guarda costa sighted and bore down on the Dursley Galley, 20, mistaking her for a merchantman, and with the intention of searching her. Naturally, the Dursley Galley did not bring to, and the Spaniard opened fire, which the British ship warmly returned. After a short fight, in which the guarda costa lost five men killed and twenty wounded, the Spaniard surrendered.TRN3
