REVIEW: 709 Police Boat
Posted 25 July 2008 - 02:03 AM
Set #: 709
Year Released: 1977
Piece Count: 50
List Price: unknown
Released in 1977, this police boat is the same as set #314 released one year earlier with the exception of a moveable minifig that replaced an earlier "armless fig".
Starting with the instructions:
The single minifig:
The set included a single red weight to keep the boat from tipping:
Here's the side view of the little boat, with decals that have long been lost at sea:
A shot of the back of the boat:
The set had three air-tight boat sections that connected to form the hull:
And the entire set:
While set 709 is by far not the best of Lego boats, it was Lego's 2nd floating boat (set # 314 being the first). The design was the same with the only real difference being the minifig (mentioned above). One must consider the age of this set when comparing it to the fine detailed sets of today.

It includes a minifig and it's design is a bit plain, but in the same time cool :)
