    For about a week now I've had a fern following my boat around..
    You can't see it when stopped.. It must have pretty high hiding.
    But when I am sailing it follows me.. revealing itself when it moves.

    I guess it doesn't really bother me cause it doesnt seem aggressive...But it spooks my tillerman something awful. He's got dark circles under his eyes now and jumps at every little noise.. always peering around looking for it.

    So for his sake I'd like to get rid of it, anyone know how?


    (yes I did try drydocking, when I put the boat back in the water it was still with me)

    2 ogres on my big boat, and all the lillypads and aquatic plants from the channel in front of brit castle pushed into a single pile by my rowboat :D It does disappear when you drydock though, but gotta love the fact that boats are capable of moving "unmovable" items, such as added portions of the map.

    So we have The Stalking Fern
    The Covert Cave Floor
    The Lurking Lillypad

    Wonder why yours went away when you drydocked Raptor and mine didn't?

    First time I tried it was just a second or two, then I relaunched it. Still there.
    Second time I left it drydocked overnight and relaunched it the next day. Still there.

    You mean you have a sign following you around?
    Or a sign to keep them away?

    Should we call it The Sinister Signpost?

    I had a rock on one of my old boats once, but it eventually disappeared after a few years.

    Aaah yes I remember the sign now..

    Sadly I have lost my faithful pilot Eli...
    Last time I drydocked trying to get rid of the Fern ,I guess he decided he'd had enough and bolted off.. muttering something about "...the fern, no ferns inna desert..."

    I have a girl pilot now.. hope she's made out of sterner stuff.

    My boat picked up an extra sail, and an elucive flow stone that pops up every now an then at the port side, but the Sail is visable by all who see my boat its at the aft deck. So your not alone....
