I predict NO ONE will acquire the new boat by ONLY turning in ITEMS. I suspect the dev team never actually ran the numbers to see how LONG it would take to acquire the needed items to get the boat that way. Why dont they just say, "It is a gold sink" or alternatively "We priced the boat so high in UO gold terms that it will appear comparatively cheap when you put it up for sale at UOCODES. Here is the math for anyone interested: Fish: you can get about 5 fish/min. Fish are worth 1 pt, therefore you need 10 million fish. If you fished 24hr/day, at a rate of 5 fish/min it would take you 1, 388.88 days, or 3.8 years. Fishing 3 hr/day it would take 11,110 days or 30.4 years Crabs/lobsters: I can get about 300/hr. They are worth 10 per. Therefore you need 1 million. At a rate of 300/hr, if you fished 24 hr/day, it would take 138 days. At a more realistic rate of say 3 hrs per day, it would take 1104 days, or just over 3 years. About the only thing positive I can say about those numbers is that it it makes unattended macro shore fishing irrelevent because even that is futile.
