Ship Repairs: - Repair cannons: requires blacksmith for lower costs. 180 skill is the better choice for lower the materials cost. - Repair ship: requires carpentry for lower costs. Note: - Using boat painting while the pirate quest is active could bug your ship. If you want to pait the ship do it without the pirate quest, after the painting dry dock the ship and replace it again. For to be sure, leave the ship somewhere and use it after the daily server restart. - For check if your ship is bugged, go near a pirate ship and see if they fire back with cannons. If they don't use cannons against you, you are bugged so dry dock the ship and re-place it, leave it somewhere and wait until is "slightly worn" then should be solved.
