ps; I may be way off base as I was un able to load the link and dont know what kind of Ironclads are involved but I think of the Monitor and the Merrimac when ironclads are mentioned.
Many of the famous Ironclads used in the ACW were unsuited for operations on the open seas (The Monitor is a good example), but a lot of other Ironclads of the time worked quite well. I think all of the Ironclads used in Lissa were ocean-going, for example.
