This was occurred with the classic client. When I entered a rowboat and immediately used the ship's wheel, I was stuck in place while the rowboat moved without me. I could control it with the mouse until it moved a few tiles away, and then control broke and it told me "You cannot pilot a ship unless you are aboard it!"

I used the mooring rope to teleport back on deck, used the wheel again, and I was still rooted in place on the water as the boat moved off without me. The third time, I took one step after boarding and before using the wheel, and the rowboat worked properly.

Thanks for the report. As you've mentioned, after you've taken a step, the problem solves itself. We'll look into the case of when you've taken control of the rowboat immediately after boarding.

Moving the rowboat with another method than mentioned above:

1- Get a rawboat near a small/medium/large standard boat.
2- While in mouse driving mode, double click the standard's boat plank. Now you're at on the standard's boat plank.
3- If you try to move, you'll move the rowboat instead.

all of the above, plus they dont seem to be as maneuverable, especially in concern to the sea market, i had my rowboat's bow right up against the docks and i still couldnt use the mooring rope to go onto the docks, row boats should be more forgiving when getting you to shore/docks.
and yes very slow moving

So with you on that. I abandoned the slow motion critter and hope it sinks asap! Is there any way to dry dock the dingy thingy?
target rope and left click you will get message "dry dock boat" just click on it and it turns back into deed

The rowboats are slow, but I think they should be as theyre (IMO)intended for disembarkation from larger ships at a distance and navigating in tighter spaces, not a primary means of sea travel(for which there are several other ships). Also, if made just small and fast, there will be reprecussions for combat.

Don't understand this:
1. After use, deed still in pack
2. Deed can be insured, so its not blessed like legacy boats?

Each time you use the deed your previous one vanishes.

Cant figure out how to command rowboat with ship commands, the mouse control on rowboats is horrid in the docks

As of right now, there are no verbal commands for a rowboat. It's all by mouse.
I feel your pain with the docks; my rowboat never faces the way I want it to until after I no longer need it facing that way.

OK, cursor keys not working.
All boats but rowboat turned into blessed model after use.

rowboat is always in deed form, not blessed.

My friend was controlling the rowboat and i tried to double click the mooring line to jump back on my boat.

I jumped out of the rowboat but fell in the water while the rowboat was moving.

So i was stuck in the water in Classic client. hehe

I second the slow slow slow!

Classic client, rowboat.. movement forward back or left right very very slow..
movement forward/right, forward/left, back/right, back/left very choppy... all while at the rudder, no voice commands

I know the test is over now but this still seems to be the place to post it, rowboats cant seem to be dry-docked while on board your main boat, i have to admit i didn't test them while test was live but seems a bit useless if you have to abandon the rowboat to get back on your ship :)
