    Orc 1
    Tokuno 2

    I am pretty sure, "drift speed" is the max speed when they are damaged. When they are fully repaired, I believe they are the same speed.

    Right Nyses, they're all the same speed. No idea what "drift" is. The only boat that has a different speed is the Britannia, which has only one speed, the same speed as "slow" in the other boats. I have several of each of them on different characters, and I've tested and they all are the same speed, and also the legacy boats are the same. Now I am speaking in a straight line, turning or something other than straight ahead speed may be what "drift" means and very well could be faster in some of them than others.

    When they first came out, we put all of them nose-even and raced them - they all move at the same speed. But the larger the ship, the slower it *seems* to move - optical illusion.

    That being said, the turning radius of the ships *are* different because of their size. And that can make a difference in a fight.

    Try racing them going at an angle. All boats seem to move 2x faster going more NW or NE as opposed to going just North or East... Same with going SW and SE. I think that is more what drift is.

    what the ships do have tho is different durability.
    the orc ship gets damaged the fastest. the tok ship is 2nd and the gargoyle ship seems to take a beating the best..

    All "High Seas" boats move at the same speed me thinks. except the Row Boat...

    The real question here is, which mount is the fastest?

    Horse , Llama , or Swampy?

    The Gargoyle ship has 150% durability, the orc ship does more damage and the tokuno ship has a larger hold. I don't recall what the Britain ship has other then more cannons.

    The Orc ship and the Tokuno ship are identical in terms of durability.

    If one fires on either from a non-orc ship with heavy cannon, it takes 15 shots to scuttle. If you fire from an orc ship with heavy cannon it will take only 11 shots to scuttle.

    The Gargoyle ship will take 18 shots to scuttle from a non-orc ship with heavy cannon and 15 shots from an orc ship.

    The gargoyle ship is indeed tougher, but the orc ship packs a bigger punch.

    The britain ship is is a hunk of junk and you will die first in a sea battle.

    You can add a house-addon to the Brit ship.. like a forge.

    Thank you Ludes. virtual on Chesy the brit boats have done well in ship to ship combat. Remember if you can get all those cannons in the fight your going to do massive broadsides.
