I have never had anyone improve Navy... probably because I tend not to do naval battles. Do you improve just by sitting in a port or do you actually need to sail out and ward off intruders?
I rarely if ever see this too unless someone finds a shrine or something to improve the APT, I almost never have that happen in a game, but that may also be because I filled up all the officer slots and tend to use many different people, so the same ones aren't fighting all the time. Usually I only see like someone that's not the leading officer improve pikes or spears from C-B.
It's a bit disappointing though to see a fellow Wu fan that doesn't like naval battles? I do see those aptitudes changes sometimes, so yeah I think you do need to actually be in a ship fighting on the water to see any increase. Not sure if being in a warship improves exp or not though, but it does seem to happen more often for me at least.

Since you can only use tactics, you might get more experience (I don't remember the numbers), but you'd also have to replenish will constantly.
Someone with 1 troop and a juggernaut only does like 20 damage to a wall, from 400 hp, and can get the Will back from a band platform or just marching back to the city for 1 turn, so I guess you could do that, then have someone else come out and build another one once its gone, but I don't have the patience to do this at all I used to have some people transport 1 troop from a city that's right near a port like Xin Ye or Luo Yang every turn to raise deeds, but even that gets tedious after a while.
