I fully disagree with speed being the only good stat for ship parts unless you only use your ship for travelling
Caravels are by far the better ship battles ship so having high amounts of durability and ram dmg is very nice. Turning speed is great too and so is ram defense. I dont see how any stat besides stability is situational
ig it’s just diff shit we’re looking for w our setups , I’ve sunk like 250 ships now so I have no desire or need to sink anymore / participate in naval combat at all (therefore ram defense / magic storage / ram damage dont really matter to me personally) , so it’s all about getting from point A to point B effectively , I’m just saying that once you’ve gotten the ship parts you need the combat stats become mostly irrelevant
I’m surprised heavy magic arcanium cannons are in second place, in my experience they’re extremely ass. at max they can get like 2x damage, but their range is so comically short that you’ll be unable to hit a lot of shots which invalidates the short reload time.
though, this is all with metal cannons. maybe the other heavy cannons are alright, but for metal you’re better off using heavy bronze cannons
