    Well my fellow fishermen/women, my Britannian ship has sank again. I had it parked at a fisher house where there used to be a lot of fishermen/women refreshing the boats on a regular basis. I hadn't been around for a while and today when I came to get my beautiful new Easter flowers, my ship is gone, along with more tons of fish than I could count.

    I've paid for one twice (first with High Seas and again just the ship alone). Personally, I have felt if it's something I paid cash money for, I shouldn't have been able to lose it at all. I understand the need for boats and ships to decay as so many people get them, quit UO, etc. But for an account that is paid up and therefore active, I think it so unfair that I have lost money because I didn't login enough.

    Sorry you lost your ship. There may be an argument for not losing what you paid cash for but as of now.... Refresh it or lose it. I wouldn't rely on others. I lost a Brit ship once and had to buy another. I bought an extra as well planning to use as a prize in future fishing contest. Maybe its time? You fish on LS?

    No. I have only ventured on Atlantic since the beginning of Britannia as we know it.

    I too had the same problem lost 2 Britannian ships too this exact same thing i think the ships/boats should work like the housing system does if the acc is not paid then will start to decay if its on a active subscription then should stay fresh and new ready to use when you next log in

    I'm on three I've lost, same issue. The one I use currently I make it a point to empty, clear and dry dock it immediately afterwards. I'm not buying anymore, lol.

    That's terrible to lose I know. But you all know that it doesn't take long to empty your ship's hold and dry dock. Your ship hold is a commodity box, just put the heavy stuff into deeds and put everything in a bag at your house.
