    So I'm out for a spot of fishing and pull up a sea serpent. No problem. Except my Enhanced Client thinks that's all a bit too exciting and crashes in panic. Sigh. Then I can't connect to the patcher for ages, eventually pick up a patch, log back in after several minutes, to a little bone pile on deck and a grey ambience.

    OK, I've never met this problem before, so a couple of questions.
    1) I thought boats were pseudo-homes, so if I logged out on one (or crash-logout) it would be instant, and the serpent wouldn't chew me? Or is this overuled by the battle-delay (even though I'm technically at 'peace')?
    2) Now I'm dead on a boat, out of range of land. Is the 'Help! I'm stuck!' button really my only option here (without Spellweaving or Sacrifice)? That seems a little .. harsh. Have I missed something obvious? I did eventually use the Help option, but it seems like overkill for something as routine as being a bit dead.

    Confused.

    Ooo, spooky haunted tillerman. Cool, I'll give it a go next time I get myself dead. Ta muchly.
     
  4. Something I do is take the spare key from my bank box and lock it down so if I needed rescuing they could recall in off my key at home.

    Place it in a box set to friends only

    Ah, the joys of fishing.....

    A few pointers for ya, scurvy-pants.....

    A- The boat isn't a home, you'll sit there for ages, bein' bait for anything nasty that happens by....

    2- Never take your spare key out of your bank box. If you played UO when houses had keys, you understand why. Protect your ship like it's your house.

    Tres- You can steer as a ghost if you stand right next to the tillerman. This is no problem (and can actually be great fun if you can stowaway as a ghost on someone else's ship). The real problems arise when you find out a ghost can't lower the plank. Argh.

    D- The best way to fix sea-sickness is the stuck command, and use the key in your bank box to reach your ship again.

    You can log out on your boat, but you'll have to use the camping skill.

    You can command your boat as ghost.

    You can lower the plank as ghost if you are in war mode.

    Thus: If you are close to land that may be the fastest way to a resurrection. If not, you are better off using 'help I'm stuck'.
