    This happened to a friend's boat tonight on Siege. What do you do when your tillerman abandons ship!! (A GM has been called.) The owner of the boat was moving the tillerman, but he ended up on the shore instead of at the back of the boat!

    So I get on this morning, I was tired and it was late when this happened. No boat in water, no tillerman on the land. I open a gate to the boat and get the message its in drydock. I check my moving crate and its not there. I guess the tillerman took off with the boat. Another call in to the gm's which will probably get no where.

    Those folks that live in Barter Town are likely responsible for the missing ship. They are very skilled at thievery.

    Well the boat is home. Yeaaa!!! After I had logged off Angel Weinie had also put in a bug report, a gm put the tillerman back on the boat and since I had had him as captain he took the boat out of the water for me. A gm did come by this morning and we chatted for a bit, he told me to ask Angel about the boat. Thanks to all who helped and to GM Stethaun for chatting with me and looking for the boat.

    I'm glad that it all ended well. It's good to know that a GM helped and that it didn't take three weeks to get this fixed.

    I guess the tillerman saw the thread on these forums about making tillermen into trash barrels and did not agree.

    Isn't the Captain supposed to go down with the ship?
    A Tillermans Union walk-out.
    They did not like the job classification change and additional work without additional pay. In fact, they get no pay.

    This could be the beginning of the Great Tillerman walk-out that was predicted years ago when all the Buc's Den wenches vanished without a trace.... Some said natural disaster, others rumored that certain Barter Town residents were responsible.... Who knows.
    And as Winter has pointed out, the pay certainly suks...
