the venetians were real awesome at building galleys, but galleys arent so awesome at doing anything outside the Med, or compared to anything built but the continental powers in the 16th century on. its weird to me that such an innovative society couldnt adapt, but i guess by that point their naval tradition was too firmly entrenched.
