D&D 5E Good Ship to Ship Combat Rules for 5e?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a 5e ruleset for sailing and ship to ship combat? My group is brainstorming a pirate themed campaign and it would be nice to not have to reinvent the wheel on the mechanics of maintaining a ship and ship to ship combat.

Theres alot of them out from various previous editions by TSR/WotC and also 3PP, 2E AD&D Of Ships and Sea, 3E Salt & Sea Dog by Kenzer, and if I remember 5E Ghosts of Saltmarsh even has some rules too. Up until the party is boarded I dont think the rule system really matters, just pick one, few tweaks or hand waving and you should be good to go.

Level Up!
