Helping a Menu Chat player with ship battles

So, I just made this new Menu Chat friend, and he was apparently trying to fight Amber Horde ships for a quest. He kept telling me he needed healing, but when I ported to him, it wasn't his pirate that needed healing, it was his ship. He apparently didn't know how to heal his ship before starting the next ship-to-ship battle, so after he got into three deck battles in a row, I unbottled my own ship and told him to port to me. I had to repeat it several times, but finally I think he understood that I would then sink more ships for him. I couldn't find any menu chat phrases dealing with ship battles terms, like "Use a potion bottle" or "Let me unbottle my ship," or even, "Let's head for the windlane."

Am I just missing them? Or do they not exist?

How did he get as far as MooShu without knowing how to use mojo potion to heal his ship? Perhaps something is missing from the tutorials? Did he skip the tutorials? But you're right, being able to give advice could be implemented, even if its just: "Check your tutorial guide."

I know, right? It really surprised me that there was no menu chat phrases that would apply to ship battles at all.
