EU3: Loading Units On To Ships

I checked Splines' tracker today to find a lot of my visitors are referred through a Google search under the query 'How do I load units onto my boats in Europa Universalis?' or some such. Well, I just happen to know the answer - and you're going to be kicking yourself. So, due to popular demand, here's the solution you've been searching for:

To load your units onto ships in Europa Universalis 3, simply order your ships into an ocean square adjacent to the territory in which you have armies, when the ships have reached their destination (this process usually takes around 2/3 days) order your men to move into the ocean square - they will do so, and, instead of drowning, they will board the boats.

Yes, the solution seems silly. You probably assumed that the boats had to be docked in order that the men could safely walk the gangplank. Today, common sense has not prevailed. However, you may still yet rule the seas. Apply the knowledge I have had conferred upon you this day, and you'll be the scourge of smelly foreigners everywhere.

HI!
that was too obvious!
There is a problem when I do that sometimes troops get on board and sometimes they don`t!it is starting to get really annoying! does it make any difference which ships we choose?

well there are some places on the map where loading units onto ships doesn't work. the east part of baltic sea for example. you can try for years to load your units but it wont work. even the arrow showing where your units are heading wont appear. its most probably a bug of some sort.

The ship has to be of type transport. You can load up to 1,000 of one type of troop per transport.
