    Just got into this ship thing. I was wondering what happens to the cannons and such on your ship when you dry dock it? Soon as I can get cannons made up I'll probably think of something else :p

    They stay on the ship, I think you have to clean them first

    Make sure you have a good stock of boards cloth and ingots, and a crafter! If you fight with your ship, you will eventually gave to repair it

    Always keep a small amount in your hold for emergency repairs

    Oh, and your hold has to be empty to dry dock it

    And you have to be near land or a dock to repair or dismantle cannons.

    Ugh. Had no idea you had to repair cannons. Watching ship battles and all you go through to load up another shot, just makes me think they put waaaaaay to much thought into this expansion lol.

    Cannons have always been massively overcomplicated, it takes hours just to get the stuff to load them with if you don't buy it, and takes forever to reload them.
