Ever wondered why boats don't bob while in water? Bethesda made a great job adding idle animations to boats but unfortunately never added them to the game due to clipping issues. Gandaganza fixed it!! Now you can enjoy the gentle bobbing while not staring at the clipping objects!
Completely Lore-Friendly and Immersive. More details below.

Mod Notes

Using the animation from Bethesda as a base, Gandaganza redid the boat's animations and created a secondary one to make sure that boats that were in the same area did not bob in sync. After that, all he did was make so that every object on the boats followed the boat's bobbing so that there were no clipping issues. In some cases, boats were slightly moved to avoid annoying clipping with the docks but not all were covered - this was due to pre-existing clipping and so it will only be changed (or not) upon feedback.

Some positioning issues were also fixed, like the barrel in Dawnstar clipping through the boat.

All boats that had objects on top of them were individually modified to keep the maximum amount of detail. Non-essential objects that do not have a workaround to make them bob, such as clutter (i.e. brooms) were removed to prevent further issues.

This mod has been cleaned in SSEEdit and every record has been checked to prevent dirty edits.
