Small fast boats have been used against main line ships for centuries. Most of the time the outcome favors the larger ships. Study your history folks.

During the war of 1812 the US had hundreds of gun boats meant to defend the harbors from naval attack. They didn't work.

In both world wars torpedo boats were used with generally poor results. Why? Because they ended up not getting to fight the slow heavy battleships in a one on one fight. Destroyers met them instead, and destroyers were almost as fast and agile and much more heavily armed. Smoke screens were used. Torpedo boats had limited range and could not operate in heavy seas. A small boat is a one hit wonder that cannot defend against the plethora of weapons that can be brought to bear upon it.
