Built the PnP and was confused why there were two different sails for the ships? Have my eyes completely glossed over a section in the rulebook explaining why it's needed?

thanks!

Each player can have up to two ships and I believe that's the way you can tell which ship is which, as it matters based on where they are on the whaling track.

Garry Got it 100% Correct. It's simply to identify which hold belongs to which ship. I will make sure this gets noted in the rules.

For the final version, we plan to make it more obvious that the ships only differ for identification. We're considering potentially having different shapes and/or more distinct colors to make them stand out. Some of that will depend on the funding level reached on Kickstarter, and ship upgrades will be an early goal.

Please let us know if you have any other questions!
