The efforts of Hawkings and the other "Wolf Pack" navigators helped ensured victory over Vanguard in three straight rounds and secured the island for colonization by RiddleMakers.
On August 25, 2007 during the blockade of Tigerleaf IV, Hawkings navigated for Imperial Coalition to defend Tigerleaf Mountain from The All-Consuming Flame, the flag of the Brigand King, Azarbad the Great. During the blockade, Hawkings commanded war frigates to contend buoys and sink opposing ships to help secure victory for his friends in Imperial Coalition. The only ship to be sunk under Hawkings's command was the Conceited Mackerel which was seized by the ship puzzle connection bug early in round 1. During round 2, Hawkings commanded the ship Good Rudd and racked up a large number of buoy points while inflicted casualties on Azarbad's fleet. The Good Rudd was one of the first ships to enter Round 3 and was ideally positioned to contend a cluster of 3 buoys totaling six points. Hawkings was able to quickly maneuver and contend for this crucial early cluster, keeping the score close until the rest of Imperial Coalitions fleet entered and took up positions around the board. He also had the distinction of being the navigator that sank the last ship, a war frigate, of The All-Consuming Flame's armada.

On September 23, 2007, Hawkings was called upon again to assist his friends in Imperial Coalition defend against the attack of The All-Consuming Flame, this time at Ansel Island.

Hawkings was the first ship into the blockade for round two and despite taking heavy damage getting into position managed to contend and hold an ocean side cluster of buoys while under continuous attack. Hawkings managed to port both ships under his command at the end of their respective rounds without being sunk.
On September 30, 2007 Hawkings won a tan/brown parrot named Gwaihir in the Bakeoff Bonanza, which was a simultaneous Sailing, Carpentry and Bilging bakeoff.

On October 26, 2007 Hawkings expanded his furnishing business with the purchase of the upgraded furnisher shoppe named Towers of Illium located on Labyrinth Moors.
On Saturday, December 15, 2007, Hawkings was called upon to assist the Pay for Play, Collateral Damage, RiddleMakers Alliance during the triple threat blockades of Jubilee IV, Terra XIV and Prolix XI. Hawkings navigated during all three blockades but is most noted for his performance in the Prolix blockade. During round 3 of Prolix he was given command of a war brig with the orders to enter the blockade board, contest buoys, harass enemy vessels, frustrate opposing navigators and generally occupy Regnum Irae in order to keep them in the Prolix blockade and out of the Terra blockade. Toward the end of the round, after Collateral Damage's supporting war frigate sank, Hawkings was faced with five enemy war frigates and an enemy war brig alone on the board. To the amusement of his allies and friends, Hawkings lead the enemy fleet on a merry chase across the blockade board. The case ranged from the middle of the board, up to the right, island side corner and back across to the center of the ocean side. During the chase he continually stung enemy vessels with shot while taking only minimal damage. The chased concluded when Hawkings entered a wind current that pushed him off the ocean side of the board. During his exit he saluted the opposing fleet by pumping a finally volley of four medium cannonballs into one of the pursuing war frigates.
In December of 2007 Hawkings once again entered every Daily Doodle contest, posting a win, seven honorable mentions, five participatory awards and a Dedicated Doodler award.

During the blockade Hawkings distinguished himself by navigating a series of war frigates to sink ships and control buoys. During rounds two and three he captured and held crucial buoy clusters that lead to Regnum Irae victories in those two rounds. Also in round three, Hawkings was able to engage and finally sink a Cry Havoc war frigate that had been harassing Regnum Irae ships throughout the blockade.
The next day on February 24, 2008, Hawkings was again called into blockade navigation duty, this time on behalf of his friends in Brink of Dawn and their bid for an island at Spectre IX. In this blockade Hawkings was given command of a series of war brigs. During rounds one and two he took control of outlying buoys and expertly defended them scoring and influencing them during crucial points of the blockade when the score remained close. He is particularly noted for not completely giving up a pair of buoys worth four points throughout the length of round two. At several points during this round he had to fight off multiple ships in order to maintain control of the buoys.
On March 15 2008 during Harmattan XIV, Hawkings helped lead his flag, Morrowind, in a losing effort to take control of Harmattan from Antheas. In round 1, the only full round his flag contested, Hawkings used his blockade navigating skills aboard a war frigate to sink ships and score points. He contested and took control of an early outlying cluster, fighting off and sinking an Antheas xebec and managed to safely exit his ship from the board at the end of the round despite running out of both rum and cannonballs. The xebec Hawkings sank is reported to be the first one sunk across all the oceans of Puzzle Pirates. Due to his efforts and the efforts of other allied navigators, round 1 went to flag Morrowind. In round 2 Hawkings was one of the first navigators on the board for Morrowind and kept the score close until it was decided to pull out of the blockade because of the large jobbing disparity in Antheas' favor. The war frigate under Hawkings' command was sunk around the time of the decision to pull out of the blockade.
