Good grief, your poor wrists... So many Marus...
Yeah, you notice I have not yet committed to any other versions. And granted, the Japanese ships all have very similar sounding names, but I bet native speakers wouldn't have that problem. I think that is part of the reason I have so many duplicates...it was hard for me to tell if I'd used the name before or not.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll make the adjustments and put up an updated version within the next day or two. Not only did my poor wrists threaten to detach themselves and leave me, my poor eyes went on strike too. I'll get this fixed up and reissued.
