don't know if there are any real pirates! fans, but to me this must be the rarest thing to achieve in the game and I know no other place to talk about it
If you hit the treasure fleet - and you could do it over and over once you knew the somewhat random schedule - you could pull down as much as 250k gold per hit. Or at least that was my experience.
