Fighting the Helm is a ship shop in Kraken's Fall. Located in a large two-story warehouse on Deadeye's Road in Kraken's Fall, this is where you can customize your ship's wheel.

[Swabbing Starts]
Starlight slips in through the glaes windows that dominate the southern section of the shop, the silvery light shining off of the polished planks that are on display. Signs over each grouping denote the types of wood and dyes available for purchase, while others denote which are for upper decks and which are for interior use. A wide oak counter edged in brass railings sits upon a slate blue rug, while a sign above proclaims, "Order Here" in bold, blocky letters. You also see a wooden plank sign and a hull merchant.

Ponter

Wizened and bent, the man has seen seasons countless.  He is dressed in threadbare military attire from a long-forgotten navy, and a pair of spectacles made from baling wire and old spyglass lenses rests on the tip of his ancient nose.
