Okay, as Exobuilder asked me, I'm going to do a review of set 4011. Since this is my first review, go easy on me. Anyway, heres an overview of the set.
Posted Image
The minifigs.
Posted Image
the shark, which I think we haven't seen in a while.
Posted Image
the highlight of this set: the white boat mold!
Posted Image
the interior of the boat.
Posted Image
some walls are built.
Posted Image
the second level is completed.
Posted Image
the complete set.
Posted Image
Overview: the set has a simple color scheme ( does white with trans blue count?) the red weight brick and the white boat mold make it really great, plus it comes with a shark, which we won't see until next year in the coast guard line, so it was a good find. For about $20, this set isn't really expensive, but a good set indeed. I give it a solid 8/10.

I own this set and had lots of fun with it when it first came out, I liked the number of blue seats in this set (4) and the furniture below decks.

The lead boatweight and fishingrod where nice as well, too bad I lost the stickers and the once so shiny white hull has yellowed....  :-(

Thanks for this review!

Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Nice review of this classic town Boat set from 1991. I own this since 1993, but it's shattered in pieces in my brick collection. I especially like the shark, which hasn't been in sets for years now

I completely agree that it's too hard to see.

I'm currently experimenting with new lighting techniques, as seen in my review of the 6444. I'd like some feedback on some help, though. :-$

Nice review there.  This was one of my earliest sets, so for me, it has the nostalgic appeal.  I miss the old da....no wait a second, I would go back to the old days for nothing!  I like my now-huge collection and the expanded colors.  haha

My parents got me this for my 8th birthday when I lived in Spain, I remember it being awesome.  :-D   Used to love playing with it in the bath tup.

Found the hull in my old LEGO box the other day...shame it's completely yellowed.  :-(

Greetings!  :classic:

Nice review on a classic set! I still have this set from when I was a kid. Unfortunantly, as a kid I was pretty fond of playing with the set in lakes and streams and therefore the stickers are no longer present, but it is still a nice set!
