If you’ve been playing a lot of Skullduggery Island and have moved on to some of the bigger and faster ships, then you’ve probably noticed that it gets pretty hard to make quick turns and navigate around. This is especially true down near the rocks surrounding Golden Harbor. The bigger ships move much faster, especially when you have the navigator in your crew, and trying to turn is really difficult. This means less success in battles with pirates and monsters, and a much tougher time trying to pick up salvage.
Fortunately, the answer is really simple: drop anchor! See, when you press the space bar to drop your anchor, your ship’s forward motion comes to an almost immediate stop, but you can still turn. So drop the anchor, turn in the direction you’d like to go, and then press the space bar again to raise the anchor and move. This is much, much better that trying to do wide turns all over the place. Check out this video which shows the difference and how to do it.
