You start off with one small size boat which will allow you to load up to 5 ‘lures’ to go out and collect ingredients. You first need to crate these ‘lures’ using the Sea Captain. Read his guide to for all the details.
The more items you load on the boat before it sails, the better rewards you get when it returns, so avoid the temptation of sending it out with a single hook as it may be hours before it returns!
The longer the boat sails for the better rewards you will get, but you have no control over this unfortunately. The sail time seems to be random, ranging from 20 minutes to 12 hours or more. After a long trip though, you will be rewarded with items you might not have expected as well as some Recipe Cards and Blueprints to make nautical theme decorations.
The table below shows the ingredients that can be obtained using the Boat Dock, including the production time required for each of the required items or ‘lures’. You can click any ingredient name to see it’s details and all the dishes that use it.
You start off with one small boat, but you can upgrade these boats to carry larger loads using upgrade tools.
Tape, Cones and Saws are used to increase boat capacity, as detailed in the table below. To upgrade click the UP arrow when loading the boat to open the upgrade dialog (seen below).
Initially you can spend the free tools given at the time of the update and more can be earned by serving customers or buying them in the Community Market.
You can also buy a second boat at the cost of 100 Gems. This is quite an investment but it does unlock a boat at Vessel Level 1, so you instantly gain access to a boat that carries 20 units and brings back a good bounty every time. Just remember to keep your Sea Captain busy creating the items you need to fill your boats!
