Hardier, and faster ships were designed by Kaiu Shimatsu in the 7th century, and they were superior in every way to the pirate ships that had plagued the Crab coasts. His followers were tasked to oversee the production of these ships, but years later the Yasuki allegued for paying taxes on the growing port village of Fundai Mura. The Crab Clan Champion declared Shimatsu's followers to be a vassal family of the Kaiu, entitled to a small percentage of all goods transported by their ships. [3]
