A colonizer like Spain, who may theoratically have naval range to anywhere on Earth after mid game may send their fleet there. They usually do so I'd be careful with my light ships on trade missions if I were you.

However, I'd not depend on my ally's fleet to be in where I want them to be. They don't like to attach like the armies do for some reason.

Galleys excel over others in inland seas sure. But still very effective in coastal tiles too. (%50 damage bonus instead of %100) However, your opponent is GB. You need quality ideas (or navy morale in national ideas) , good admiral with shock and manuever pips and ambush Brits in an inland sea tile to beat them effectively. Also your galley count should be 3 galley to 1 English heavy at...

I'd say not very likely, but he may try naval invasions if there are no other, closer targets for him to siege down. But even if he does, Ottomans usually roll with gallies, which will get slaughtered by superior English naval quality and his heavies, especially if you are playing with Rule Britannia and he gets +1 to his rolls from the wooden wall.

All in all, if your strategy hinges on the Ottomans going to Britain with their fleet and beating them, I'd say it's not gonna work. You might try to sneak a landing if he gets near and a prolonged naval battle ensues, but don't get your hopes up.

Spain could be better, but generally, in my experience, waiting for the AI to beat the British fleet is a pretty frustrating experience. As for proper naval composition, if you are fighting in the open seas, fight with heavies. Make 2-3 stacks that match your combat width, engage with one, and reinforce with the others, cycling the fleets so only one of them at a time is in combat.

Galleys excel over others in inland seas sure. But still very effective in coastal tiles too. (%50 damage bonus instead of %100) However, your opponent is GB. You need quality ideas (or navy morale in national ideas) , good admiral with shock and manuever pips and ambush Brits in an inland sea tile to beat them effectively. Also your galley count should be 3 galley to 1 English heavy at least. Admirals are game changers, don't attack Brits without a good one.

I drop galleys in favor of heavies late game. A necessity than choice for projecting my naval influence overseas.

More advanced Heavy ships are more effective than later galleys though. Pure heavy fleets usually around 30 to 50 ships depending on income and engagement with so I don't have to reinforce during easier battles.

These numbers are completely arbitrary though. I usually check how many heavies my opponents have in the ledger to see how much heavy ships I actually need and build or split ships accordingly. AI can doomstack their heavies so unless you outnumber them, don't send your warship fleets seperately on long distances or carpet blockade if they have more heavies than you. AI is also good at sniffing our smaller, more vulnerable fleets and hunt them down.
