That's a nice boat phred. I like the SNOT on the front of the boat.(not sure if you can call it a bow on a small long boat)

That is a huge longboat Blackmoor!  I've actually never seen one quite so large, wonder if it had a special purpose to fit so many men.  How many minifigs do you think yours would hold? You should try it just for comparison  :pir_laugh2:

See my previous post. :pir_laugh2:

Most of the longboats aboard a third rate were also equipped with a mast and a hold under the waterline for supplies. There are even some examples carrying swivel guns.

This is also interesting. The design is from BigBoy, the guy who built that fantastic HMS Victory. The image is too large to deeplink it.

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

(Percy Bysshe Shelley)
