Naval combat in Sea of Thieves relies heavily on players manning ship-mounted cannons while others players spot and steer the ship.
Incoming cannonballs can blow holes in your ship's hull, which can sometimes be patched up if players hammer Wooden Plank over them in time.
If a ship takes on too much water, it can sink.
Mermaids will often rescue players when a ship sinks.
