I've published my entry, but a few words first:

I'm not exactly a master ship builder! :-P
I second this - my first ship that I've published isn't as good as I'd have liked it to be - I felt the sail and rigging/ropes let it down a bit. Ah well. *sad*

So, you have found some of these hull pieces?
Kinda...alternative means doncha know!
I think my entry is even more of a wildcard than Pietje's! I thought about the "Trade" theme for the IMTP ship, and, after watching one of Jamie Oliver's programmes about chicken farming, decided to have parrot smuggling - the cramped conditions e.t.c. After discovering I only have 6 parrots, a brown eagle and an owl, I decided this was not fiesable and moved onto animal smuggling. Then I ran out of animals and ideas. Then Piratical supply. Aha! Perfect. By this stage I'd built the basic boat with half a hull, but needed a reason for it to exist - it is too flimsy to be a fighter and too large to be an escape boat, so a trader instead.
