Rubban’s Turban

Wondrous item, uncommon

This silken turban is always crusted with salt and weathered by wind and sun, like that of an experienced rubban (ship’s captain). While wearing the turban, you gain a +2 bonus to Strength (Athletics) and Dexterity (Acrobatics) checks to swim, climb rigging, and balance on a ship, as well as Wisdom (Survival) checks made to notice or avoid natural hazards in aquatic terrain, and Intelligence checks to recall lore about ships and seafaring.

In addition, if you worship a deity that grants the Nature or Tempest domain, once per day you can speak a command word as a bonus action while unraveling your turban to transform it into a small ship’s boat. This boat is 20 feet long, has two pairs of oars and a single mast with a square sail, and can carry up to 12 passengers and crew. Upon command, or after 8 hours, the boat returns to hat form, dumping out any occupants.
