That's a perfectly understandable and reasonable attitude. There are very few authors who can pull off modern-style long-distance, wait-it-out naval combat. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are Elizabeth Moon and David Weber, and even their battle scenes sometimes don't come out as exciting as all that, sometimes. Your battle scenes, be they naval or otherwise, come off quite well.
