Ships are multi-room sea vessels that may be privately owned and traded. They are much bigger boats which include canoes, row boats and other small watercraft. Ships use special sailing commands. Boats use normal movement commands. Ships require special skills to board from water, but can be entered from a shore or dock with the ENTER (shipname) command. Ships can suffer damage during combat, and can be repaired and customized with the ship building skill.
