One of the many commendations you can complete as you sail the sea is the Hunting Boat commendation.
To complete this commendation, you must defeat enemies using a Cannon Rowboat. You will need to defeat 25 enemies to complete the commendation fully.
First, you will need to get your hands on a Cannon Rowboat to start working on this commendation.
Hunting Boat Commendation
To complete this commendation, you’ll need to kill 25 enemies using the Cannon Rowboat. You can kill skeletons, Ocean Crawlers, Sirens, or other pirates to receive credit towards this commendation.
You’ll first need to find a Cannon Rowboat. Cannon Rowboats randomly spawn on the shores of islands. So sail around the Sea of Thieves and keep an eye out on the beach of each island you pass. You can attach rowboats to your ship to take with you when you find one.
Once you have a Cannon Rowboat, you are ready to take down some enemies!
An easy way is to go on an Order of Souls Bounty Voyage and gather groups of skeletons near the beach. Then, row your Cannon Rowboat to the shore and fire away!
You don’t need to kill all 25 in one session. You can work on this commendation over several sailing sessions.
