A very decent clammer, looks very fabulandish (if that's a word :tongue:)

For my very own nostalgic reasons I would have liked to see the blue Fabuland boat hull used though, but the blue/white one works very well too.
And for some reason I really liked the deck :blush:

What? That doesn't seem like the Ras I know at all, I'm sure he wouldn't do such a thing without reason, which means you must have done something nasty to deserve that :tongue:

Oh this is beautiful!  :wub: I've been wondering why Captain Siegfried hasn't been hanging around in Arctic W... and it seems he's found a new love. The hull works great, and I especially like how you've done the prow. That deck is cool and it's also the first ship I've ever seen with a tiled roof!

Thanks for the birthday wishes; I better go off clamming now...

(Jipay never looks happy at parties; he really needs to chill out some more. Maybe he should put down that sword and pick up a drink...  :grin: )

The steamboat hull is very nice... but it's a bit hard to use. It's generally too short and the sides are too high.
