    When leaving a boat in the water (with fishing quest - so can't be drydocked). Remove all items from the hold AND re-deed all cannons and remove them.

    Congratulations to whoever found my boat, please enjoy the 5 heavy cannon and the box of ammo to fire them that was in my hold.

    hehe we live and learn. Put it down to experience and move on. I gated Molly out to the ship to repair it, since carpenters use less resources.
    I won't bother replacing the cannons, I doubt I'd ever use them anyway. There was nothing on board that can't be replaced.

    I thought I'd parked it where it wouldn't be noticed. Thought wrong didn't I? :lol:

    I had 5 heavy cannon, each needed 1800 ingots and 75 boards to make. I also had a box with 30 powder charges, fuses and cannon balls.

    The boat itself cost around 450k, but I still have that, I just had to repair it - 500 boards and 600 cloth.

    It was just a bit of an 'oops' moment.

    With the new boat tracking function you get a cursor that leads you to any boat hehe. As for your stuff being taken.....thanks for the heads up. Thats the fun of being able to blow other peoples boats up is pillaging rights. If you want more cannons lemme know i could probaly whip some up for ya.

    Thanks :) I made the first ones, I can make more, but I'm not sure I'm going to bother.

    Yeah, Nightstalker has been prowling the docks of the Sea Market ...
    New place to catch prey...

    I understand the quest prevents dry docking while progress is made, but
    I am curious ...

    Does cannons prevent dry docking...obviously, stuff in the hold does...?

    Now, now. You know darn well locking that thread had nothing to do with this one.

    I'm not in the least cross about the boat. I learned from it and now don't leave it in the water when I log off, only taking a quest when I have stock in every type of fish and time enough to deliver an order.
    I haven't replaced the cannon either :D.

    On a side note, if you kept the maps that were in the hold (though you probably didn't?) the one with the cross on it, if you tell the tillerman 'single #2' it will take you to serpent's pillars if you're anywhere in the area covered by the map.

    Queen Zen you can still sail the old way with the new boats.

    I have a couple of questions. What is the tracking command?

    And in all my years I've never been able to get a tillerman to use a map, how does that work?

    Thanks

    Short answer, drop it on his head and tell him 'start'. Longer answer, and much more detail about ships in general, can be found here:
    Shipborne Travel and Adventure

    You'll notice Molly is listed as an 'officer' on Marie's ship. That's because I had to take her out to it to repair it! Repairs use less resources if they're done by a carpenter.

    To track ships, simply say 'start tracking'
