The only consideration I can think of is what are you going to do if one
ship has it's engines suffer one or two threshold checks? As a pirate or
raider player, if I know the whole group is going to follow exactly with
each other, knocking down or out the engines of one ship would ensure my
being able to capture the entire group.

All that is gold does not glitter,
     all those who wander are not lost.
