'Destroy 3 ships with one Broadside' What does that mean?

Specifically 'broadside', is it literally the broad side of a ship? Does that mean, I can only use 1 side?

It means sink three ships with one shot of your cannon.

Yeah, a broadside is the term for firing all the cannons on one side of a ship at once; easily done with a group of the little boats.

It means only use one side of your ship to fire your cannons, it does not mean sink 3 ships in one volley.

The standard definition of broadside refers to firing the guns, and would mean that it would indeed need to be a single salvo. Now if you managed to do it in multiple salvo's, then that means that the developers screwed up the message.

Either way, grape shot, and a mission with large numbers of gunboats will take care of it. I managed to get five in a single salvo. A sixth one only survived because of extreme distance. So I turned into it at full sail and rammed it.
