Yes. It is really silly that you craft a ship intended for Margoria waters with the hazards etc. and introduce weekly fishing quests that require harpoon fishing; yet you can't use the Epheria Sailboat that took so long to craft for that very purpose, to use the harpoon to catch the harpoon fish species required.

Or indeed simply to fish for the harpoon fish species they introduced with the Margoria expansion.

Forcing players to switch to a Fishing Boat simply to catch 1-2 harpoon species for these quests and sail out to the middle of Margoria to catch them in a flimsy Fishing Boat makes no sense.

The harpoon tooltip does state it requires a Fishing Boat but this was before ships were available and presumably just to stop them being used on islands etc.

- Description: 
A Gathering Tool made for catching deep sea fish. Some fish can only be caught with a harpoon. - It requires a Fishing Boat to use.

This should now be changed as suggested to It requires a Fishing Boat, Epheria Sailboat or guild Galley to use.

Can't believe it's impossible to use harpoons on the epheria boat. Hope this gets changed in some future patch

For reals?  This is a no brainer...  hell they should make the harpoon be a thing you attach to the ship and have the minigame be like the ine in Monster Hunter where you shoot out a harpoon net and catch like 5+ fish at a time!

My boats not ready yet but dam...  this is upsetting.  Like...  what even man?!

If it stays this way, harpoon fishing might as well be taken out of the game. I crossed the Margoria twice on my fishing boat, not eager to repeat the experience now I have an Epheria boat.

While I'm not normally one for jumping in on these kinds of threads, I do agree with the OP.  I love doing Harpoon Fishing in the game and was very sad to learn that you can't use it on the sailboat/galley.  While in the Margoria sea, you have to contend with Ninesharks (whether constantly dodging them or facing off with them) and Pirate vessels (same as before, dodging or engaging) and with a fishing boat, you are asking for a long swim. 

For the game to require us to use our fishing boat to accomplish the weekly quest for the sailboat pattern (among other goodies) is just cruel and unusual punishment.  Please include these new ship designs in a future patch to be added to the list for the Harpoon.  Thanks Kakao/Pearl Abyss for your time and such an amazing game.

+1 from me on this.

And while they are at it, can they let us equip our "Old Totem of the Sea"?

I have only tried to upgrade mine 5 times so far, I hear I have another 12 to go i think before it pops xD

I think you'd find the accuracy of harpooning from a vessel the size of the Epheria Sailboat to be ineffective. A Fishing Boat size makes more sense.

Remember, the Sailboat is intended as a trade ship.

 

This is surely an oversight!

Why would you think that?

because all of what Moonraker said.
 

tl;dr : concomitance of the addition of the boat and the harpoon weekly maybe?

What we need is the ability to add things onto our ship through the boat crafting houses, additional cannons, a fixed harpoon gun that can be repaired at wharf manager, a fishing chair with an umbrella and a beer cooler xD

The whole harpooning doesn't make sense. Is there anything left from a cuttlefish after it's been peppered with 10 harpoons?

i can reel in a whale alone, in high heels on a boat built with less than 60LT of materials (whatever an LT is, i can put 20+ boats in my bagpack for comparison) without it rolling upside down... We're fishing on the moon man.

You can't put boats in your inventory.

OK i can put 20 x 60 LT in my bag. I'm estimating the weight of my fishing boat, and it's less than that :

So you want it to be realistic simulator, like need a full party to carry 1 chopped down tree ?

shoot out a harpoon net and catch like 5+ fish at a time

Why not 100 fish at a time, minimum 5 seems a little low.

 

Seriously guys, there are some mechanics that are intended. Some stuff has to be gathered manually, and it's a GOOD thing that you still need fishboat to catch some harpoon fish, and have a little risk in that.

i want nothing except being able to harpoon from my Sailboat and not have to sail  Epheria Nada + an extra Port Ratt -> Margoria Nada -> Port Ratt -> Nada for balls.
also not being told how unrealistic it is by a random know-it-all would be an extra bonus, thankfully, i'm free to dream whatever i want.

but since I am a clever gril, i'll just let an alt sit there with his ass in a fishing boat.
