  1. A knot is one nautical mile per hour (1 knot = 1.15 miles per hour). The term knot dates from the 17th century, when sailors measured the speed of their ship by using a device called a "common log." This device was a coil of rope with uniformly spaced knots, attached to a piece of wood shaped like a slice of pie. The piece of wood was lowered from the back of the ship and allowed to float behind it. The line was allowed to pay out freely from the coil as the piece of wood fell behind the ship for a specific amount of time. When the specified time had passed, the line was pulled in and the number of knots on the rope between the ship and the wood were counted. The speed of the ship was said to be the number of knots counted (Bowditch, 1984)
  2. Please create an item to use when sailing so that you can gauge speed. For example, a knotted rope that you can throw into the water to see how fast you are going. ;
  3. Even if you do not include a Market place in the Free ports, I think creating a "Trade Chat" type system that worked in freeports would be productive. i dont crave a way to instantly buy and sell goods, i crave a way to communicate with ppl in game to try and facilitate the buying and selling of goods. As is, i can communicate with people in my server cluster concerning goods not found on all islands in the server, but the game is lacking a way to readily establish trade across map regions.
