If you think it can be used, I will finish it and I will gladly share it with you together with various DC barrel meshes that I had modelled in the past.
Nice! I'd be happy to use it, already looks much better than current mesh

I should have guessed, seeing that all funnels in game are separate models Thanks!

I tried setting node height from way above deck to below keel with no visible effect to the bow spray. PT boat has the same issue. So has every ship below 200 tons I checked. I suspect it might have something to do with small boats moving a lot more on waves, because all larger ships (even imported ones) have bow spray animation constantly playing.

Apart from this, I noticed another, um, spiritual issue with my ship model (it seems to also be on some other imported ships). As the ship is sinking, its soul is rising up to heaven. Seriously:
