Okay, so I've had some free time and really wanted to find something to do with all the random row boats sitting around. My apologies to those overseas who have never had to sit through the awful car sales advertisements here in the USA. You're better off for not knowing them.

Four words: You Made My Day (YMMD). I really love the sign, and the idea is great also. But my favourite part would have to be the hybrid boat :pir-tongue:. Overall wonderfully done.

This is hilarious.  The pick-up boat with the gunrack is the best part.  You, sir (or ma'am, I don't know) have just made me smile.

YAAAR!!...You caught my favorite part of the project. I'm so proud someone noticed the gun rack.

I really enjoyed looking at all the boats for sale, nice work of the new baseplate as well.

Hmmm, I do need a new row boat, off to Big Al's then :pir_laugh2:

Arghh, a great and creative pirate MOC. I really like the hybrid, now I can get the satisfaction of a big ship like Brickbeards Bounty with about 20 pieces :pir-tongue:

Nice moc, and good use of that ugly baseplate.
Instantly reminded me of "stan's previously owned vessels"  :pir-classic: .

That is effing hilarious!!! :pir-tongue: I had planned on incorporating most of my boats into my current MOC, which I'm about to post pictures of as a WIP, but it's gonna be a lot more "serious" or something... like there's a carpenter or something, and a drydock where construction has halted on an Imperial vessel that's been sitting for 15 years :-p

You made my day, that's a great MOC man, great MOC. Great idea.. I'm still debating whether or not to buy a second set with that baseplate, I just have to disguise the seam that shows between the two. :pir_laugh2:
All time favorite: the original Imperial Flagship
Modern favorite: Race for the Stolen Treasure (X5 and counting)

I really like this! I especially like the idea of a car dealer in it. :pir_laugh2:
Nice usage of that baseplate too! I noticed when I looked for the second time.
The letters are very well made too.

I'd like a hybrid please. :pir_laugh2:

Wow you really captured the cheesy American car commercial well, but pirate style. I really like your sign especially the shark taking a nibble at the boat. The sales representatives are very funny. Your pick up boat and hybrid boat are  clever. A hilarious creation!  :pir-tongue:

Mr. Brickvergnugen,
I hope that all of your quality row boats have been checked for leaks.
As Mr. Samuel Arrow can attest, it's very important that each boat is carefully checked. :thumbup:
