OK I sent my fleet to Swizzle (100 points, 1941). I'm thinking that we play each 100 point game to its conclusion (150 VP) and then keep a running score tally across each year game. (So, we'd cut off the 1942 game after someone earns 150 points and then add that the 1941 score for the running total.) 100 points of fresh stuff each year that the game progresses, and surviving pieces come back for the next game. For surviving pieces, I think it makes sense that they come back sans damage? They limp to the nearest port for repairs in between battles.
Also, for future games (since it did not matter as much this time) do you want to play with cost corrections for Haguro and the TBD Devastator? I own both and usually play with a 20 point Haguro and a 7 TBD Devastator, which makes both more reasonable.
