Link, Ciela and Linebeck aboard the S.S. Linebeck
|Comparable Item(s)|| 751-VL1096|
King of Red Lions
After Link rescues Linebeck from the Temple of the Ocean King and meets him back at his ship, Oshus arrives and tells the young hero that he should go to the Isle of Ember and talk to Astrid for clues on how to find the Ghost Ship. Linebeck agrees to go with both Link and Ciela on their quest to travel around the World of the Ocean King and rescue Tetra.
The S.S. Linebeck is controlled by drawing its path on the bottom screen of the Nintendo DS. While out on the sea, there will be an arrow at the bottom of the screen which can be pressed to make the ship jump and evade Sea Traps. The right side of the touch screen has a gear with the words "Go" and "Stop" to halt the ship if necessary. When Link buys the cannon from Eddo, it will be immediately installed onto the ship, where Link will have an infinite amount of bombs to destroy enemies out on the sea by just tapping the monster. Eventually the Salvage Arm will also get installed on the ship to obtain treasure from deep beneath the waves.
When at sea, the ship's endurance meter appears as Green Hearts on the top screen. If the ship runs out of hearts, it will be a Game Over. Docking the ship replenishes any hearts lost during travels. The Salvage Arm, however, must be repaired on Mercay Island inside the Shipyard, where the ship can also be customized with different Ship Parts.
In order to dock on an island, the ship's destination must be drawn and touch the anchor symbol that is situated next to the island. Once done so, the ship will automatically follow the path drawn and land on the island as it is nearing to it.
Towards the end of the game, the S.S. Linebeck gets completely destroyed after Link and Linebeck defeat the Ghost Ship. Once the Ocean King returns to his original form, Linebeck, instead of asking for treasure, asks for his ship back. The S.S. Linebeck is last seen during the game's ending when Link watches it sailing away without any visible damages.
- Main article: Ship Parts
The S.S. Linebeck is completely customizable, and most of its ship parts can be randomly found either in treasures from dungeons or from the ocean floor or by trading them with other users via Wi-Fi. Once he has obtained a ship part, it will immediately be transferred to the Shipyard in Marcay Island, where the young hero can talk to the man there to customize the boat as Link pleases. The ship's stamina can increase by either using parts from the same set or by having a good combination of sets. The maximum stamina a ship can have without the Golden Set is seven hearts; however, by having the Golden Set, its stamina will increase to 8 hearts.
