An 18th-19th century sailing ship similar to the ships used down my local river a couple hundred years ago.
My favourite image of the ship of a dad teaching his son to fish, the deck of this ship is made using the SNOT technique, the tan bricks are all on their side. It is an easy way to make a smooth deck!
Here is my least favourite part of the ship, I don't know whether the stern looks good enough yet, but it will suffice for now!
That is my latest ship, I wanted to build a small ship, not used for war (like all my other ships ) and I am quite happy with the way it turned out. As normal any comments and criticism are certainly appreciated (and adhered to!)

I really like this kind of ship!
It looks like the ship that I stole from the bluecoats
Though Katarina is refitted into a battle-sloop, and yours just stays how he should be.

A fishing or merchant ship is someting we need to see more of around here. I wonder if they would use nets as well as fishing poles though.
What I would change, however, is the rigging. The thread you used is just too thin! I think you should consider using a thicker string or yarn to make it all pop. I would also consider making the bow less boxy.
See these MOCs and MORE in the Guilds of Historica!

The bow was slightly unavoidable with my amount of dark red pieces however i'm happy with how the bow turned out anyways.
Thank you everyone for the comments!

I also like the deck. Perhaps you could make the mainsail a bit longer towards the deck.
Outside of that, great job
