I just scored a few more doubloons from daily shipment rewards.

I'm thinking of getting premium tar for one more T6 ship while discount is on.

I have quite a few T6 ships that I have bought premium cam for already.

To help me decide another one to spend 500 doubloons on - what T6 ships have you kept and why?

er, i prefer T7-10 ships for keeping, but for T6 i kept leander, budy, fusou, pepsicola

Agree. But I have 500 doubs, not 1000.

Leander seems to get a lot of love from people.

Ummmm. All of them. :Smile_child: Not really into selling tech tree ships. Never been badly in need of credits so why would I?

I have all the T6 prems except for the Ruskie Nurnberg Makarov. Tried buying it from the tech tree and is say "processing error try again later", so I shall.

Up to you but if you have Perth I would save the dubs. Very similar ships, Perth has access to HE and AP but is easier to citadel due to having a longer citadel box and WG not bothering to model her correctly. :Smile_facepalm:

Still working on her.

And yeah, probably a good call.

INB4 edit.

What is premium tar used for? Sealing leaks?

Making your anodes sting. Right @AntifoulAwl ?

Yeah.

That and pouring over the stump of limb amputations. Has to be hot though, to sear the flesh.

I thought they used it in caulking between the deck planks with old rope threads, to seal the deck?

Or am I just being practical?

And now I get the reference too. Originally though it must be a typo, cause its the kind of thing my spellcheck/fast typing would do. :fish_palm:

I keep is Ryujo because I'm not interested in playing CVs, so I don't go higher. Actually in Random she can be a bully with 311 setup. And to have at least 1 ship of every ship type in my port.

Otherwise T6 ships interest me none...

 

Be careful with premium tar. May increase the chance of your ships getting ablazed.

Look, @AntifoulAwl is the real tar fan. You'll have to ask him about increased fire chance of tar coated ships.

Although his latest Podcast titled, "How Premium Tar doubles your fire chance on Tech Tree Ships" maybe be a give away.

Close.

Not old ropes, but oakum or cotton. Once it's in place, it looks like rope.

It's capped of nowadays with poly marine sealant, but a mixture of putty and tar used to be used.

And it's in the hull. It would fall out the decks, as it must be keep wet in order to work- it swells and becomes watertight. Decks dry out, so putty is used.

 

As for tar, modern epoxy tar is used on steel below the waterline for anticorrosion, with a covering of antifoul to prevent barnacles, etc.

When ships were made of timber, tar was painted on the bottom to help seal the hull.

 

- you made me think of work, when I'm supposed to be on holidays :cap_viking:

Next podcast will be titled 'How to tighten your stern gland.'

Very informative, especially if you have a leaky shaft.
