    Am I missing something? I am a long standing patron of the library.. poured millions into it.

    But I don't see the big ship I so dearly desire as a reward yet... Other people on my shard have them.

    *tries to mix scowl and pout*

    The reward is only given by the fisherman turn in NPC. It will be a deed right at the end of the reward list. It'll take millions in game to obtain this ship. You can also purchase it from the UO store.

    Be warned, the ship is very slow, slower than the other boats which is a major downfall.

    No, My bard turned in the gold/Lobster and crabs and took the Britannian ship and then gave it to my fisherman. :)

    Hi, I don't think any of the boats are faster then each other. This Britainnia boat appears to be very slow because it takes up the whole screen and when it sails it doesn't look like we are moving. When you compare it to the older, original boats they sail extremely fast. Maybe its just the animation because those boats are smaller and another player has a better connection speed so when you have a boat race your boat lags and they don't. Still very funny to watch. LOL.

    I'm not so sure about that.. doesn't the description say something like.."while the slowest of the boats found on the High Sea, its increased durability and firepower..."

    It really is slower.
    The fastest it goes is somewhere between the speeds of the other ships, so sailing in a formation means the other ships have to alternate :(

    Just don't try taking it into Fel. A Tokuno Ship would take it out with hit and run tactics.
