Unless the ships actually ADD something or are necessary for crossing water, what's the point?  Adding nice icons is okay, but, imo, the problem here is that you can still cross water without them so they add not strategy changes to the game.  I think I'd rather see some basic improvements to this already pretty darn good game. Sort of take it from good to great.  Maybe, long term these are intended to become something but for now it's pretty "ho hum" to me. 

PS  I may be overstating this or at least speaking more strongly than I should.  You decide.

I guess you could say that we will be naval gazing instead of navel gazing in the future.

As I said above, these ship graphics are the ground work for something else. So, yes, you are speaking more strongly than you should. But go for it! :)

It may be difficult for someone who hasn't been around as long to understand, but the devs have promised navies for a VERY long time, and any incremental step in that direction is a huge deal to us who have been waiting for it for so long.

Another suggestion:  make the sails of the ships represent the troops/diplos/traders affiliation to the player.  So your own ships would have blue sails, confed/alliance ships would be green, NAP would be light yellow, neutral would be yellow, and at war would be red.  Just a thought.  That way you could increase the size of the military/diplo ships too.
