British sailors boarding a man-of-war
The cutting-out raid was a method of attack usually undertaken while the enemy ship was at anchor in the dead of night. The attackers, leaping from their small boats would storm and with luck take the upper deck. This plan relied on surprise and the disadvantages of being heavily outnumbered meant it was not a popular means of assault.
