I don't think that normal Earth ship would be capable of weathering Highstorms, and certainly not pre-industrial age ones. So most likely some ships on Roshar would be constructed in a way so as to be capable of weathering Highstorms, or at the very least able to make sure that they're never caught in one. What modifications do you think that a ship would need in order to weather a Highstorm? So far all that I've been able to think of is that they'd need: retractable or folding mast (otherwise the mast would be torn of during a Highstorm, or possibly capsize the ship) several more anchors than a normal ship (for stability and to prevent being blown too far off course) possibly be enclosed on top (in a manner similar to a Korean turtle ship) outriggers or multiple hulls (for stability) What ideas do you have for ships to allow them to endure Highstorms? Note: I'm not too ship savvy, so it's possible (or rather probable) that I'm wrong about something here. If so, please do correct me.
