10 Fyodor Fyodorovich Ushakov

Thanks to Ushakov, Nelson only had to deal with a combined Franco-Spanish fleet instead of a full French Navy in it's greatest form. Udhakov destroyed all major French navy bases during the war of the second coalition - most notoble of which was his victory at Corfu. Ushakov made it easy for Nelson (Nelson just had to fight a Franco-Epanosh fleet while having superior Canon/arsenal equipment against his enemies) [Ushakov had to win his battles with equal level guns which just proves his superiority against Nelson] Ushakov never lost a battle (and never lost a ship if I am not mistaken) while Nelson lost a few battles/ships. I would put Ushakov on the 2nd place or at least at the top 5 of this list.
