The ship controller needs to be updated to handle moving a ship more than once per tick for speeds above 80mph, as the other vehicle controllers do.
This task depends upon

First attempt:

Some of this stuff is in inherited classes for road vehicles and trains. Perhaps a ship is also a ground vehicle?

Or limit ships to just below 80mph? :D

The idea of ground vehicles was to work towards RV consists with trailers, much like train wagons.

I don't think tug boats are reason enough to consider ships as ground vehicle :)

From irc:

peter1138: andythenorth, the patch to make ships faster worked, iirc
peter1138: it was just... pointless
peter1138: instant stopping was a problem
peter1138: that's even worse for ships
