    Whenever I need to access the SeaMarket, it is always a headache to approach the docks due to the large number of large ships very close to it making it difficult to even manouver to get to the docks.

    Yes, I know, we have a rowboat but that does not mean one should not be able to access the docks for a limited time (20 minutes...) with a large ship.

    All it would require, is force the parked ships be able to do it only farther away from the SeaMarket than where they stop now, so to allow more room to others to manouver to get to the SeaMarket.

    Also, it would be very convenient to have 4 large sea lanes free of ships (North. South, East and West) so that wherever a ship is approaching to reach the SeaMarket, they will find a convenient sea lane empty of ships to approach the SeaMarket.

    Thanks.

    Yes to this. As it is now it stinks. I can't even image how it is on a larger populated shard.

    Yes she did; there's certainly a channel to the north and south marked by buoys on Europa. It extends for some considerable distance too...the only problem is that boats still tend to get moved to the edges so you can run into them when approaching from that angle, but once inside the channel you can just sail directly to the Sea Market.

    Yes but it still is not enough, at least, on more populated shards.

    The quantity of large ships too close to Sea Market makes it hard to manouver.

    And the bouys make it even worse since while trying to get close to SeaMarket often one gets stuck in between parked ships and the bouys with difficulties to move around and turn.

    There needs to be more space to allow manouvering, I think.

    Ships are parked just outside the buoys area, and that makes a wall around the Sea Market. You need to navigate along the wall of boats to find an entrance/exit. :/

    I'm on Chesapeake, and while I need to do a bit of manuevering to get to the sea market, it is hardly difficult and not worthy of further Dev attention as they should have bigger fish to fry. Pardon the pun.

    They need to move the bouy wall further out, I think it's only 10 or so tiles out from the docks. Should be atleast double that... However, I have yet to not find an entrance/exit, So maybe it's fine.

    They should just let you recall to the Sea Market. Screw it. You still have to sail out to fish or fight pirates, and sail back to turn them in.

    Even with a row boat there have been times of difficulty finding a way into the channel.

    I've been lucky so far and have found a way in every time.

    The funny thing is that the way in is always on the other side.

    If I approach from the south I'll find a small opening on the north side. If I approach from the east the opening will be on the west side, etc..

    It's amusing in the exact same way that flies constantly buzzing into your face is amusing.

    I just wish boats were more like pets and they logged out with you... as in when you log out.... they vanish... and when you log back in they reappear.... and if something is where they were... they should just move a bit away and appear. But that's just my opinion.
