The krakens have been setup to be a cut above most of the best spawn to do group activities, but they come with the need for ships.
We're glad it gets brought up, especially since we'd like to start seeing them used more, and we intend to look at them in not too long.

Give us a reason to use them.

That would give a "need" to use them, but still no "reason" to use anything but a raft.

You are very, very wrong. Rafts would be a high risk for anyone other than the guy holding the steering wheel. If water is turned into acid it's kind of risky to stand on a raft considering the amount of displacements effects that are in the game, don't you think? Also less hp equals faster destruction in case of sea vessel encounter - again - possible death if raft is destroyed before you reach shore. The more hp the safer it would be, so the bigger ship the better.

I wonder when will you guys realize that the suggestion i linked is actually solving many issues while introducing a lot to the game at the same time.

So you are saying people should pay the expense of building or buying a Ship just in case they should "fall off" when going from, say, Human lands to Cairn?

No, I say in this case people should move from island to island. Mount should be enough for that. That would make some areas choke points. Making ambushes possible, making land control a thing. But if group of players wanted to move straight through water (and not close to shore) it would be much safer to use a ship and not a raft. For sea towers, sea villages, etc. Which makes perfect sense and again enables additional content in a sandbox game. Of course people can also risk a raft trip. But raft far from shore should not be a best choice and would be exactly that.

So Krakens are not worth the time/effort currently?

However, you have to take into account why we are introducing local banking.
In New Dawn, its main purpose is to be a convenience feature.

Judgement call on if it is worth it or not, but right now, the only use for Ships is Krakens and "Lets blow something up".
