Be nice to have a dedicated Fishing Boat

isn't that pretty much what 7th rate trade ships are?  Though minus the bonus but you can get that with a perk.

That's why I said it would be 'nice' ...admittedly it's not vitally needed -just something that might be fun to craft and and add a little diversity to the ship building market, and maybe a little extra benefit to anyone willing to sail one.  :)

Fishing is a prime market, unique in that it's not go to a port a click "collect resource" You have to sail around and find spots to fish. Fish is food, food is the lifeblood. Fishing was a huge business on it's own and it would be great to see a purpose built fishing vessel. Simply a cutter-refit that adds 20% to small fish catch, to a LGV refit for sharks and whales, which can be processed for their resources and sold, as a sort of alternative to the mining you would see in other games.

A dedicated fishing boat would be cool, it would be nice to see AI fishermen sailing around ports. Even better if pirates could attack them to reduce prosperity of hostile ports.

A Gommier or Lugger maybe..  That would make something for new captains in 7th rank ships to hunt.

For a lugger, there is the well documented Le Coureur (1776) that participated in the American Revolutionary War.

As for having a new 7th-rate in game, I for one would vote for a small 3-masted one, such as a French corvette built in the middle of the 18th century, also well-documented (L'Amarante, La Sardoine...). Il like it to sail the 6th-rate (corvette) 3-masted Rattlesnake.
