Small Sail Boat by Walter Boy, on Flickr

A small sail boat that was used in my recent Lighthouse diorama.
I think this type of boat would be considered a "cog" but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Really cool and the brick built sails are cool too...
About the type of ship: Nah... It is a very small cog if so, the rigging is from a cog/viking ship but the hull os small. And if it is a cog it is better on the history forum.

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that are the best. This is a great little MOC and a nice use of those Lego boats. You can call almost any boat with a single mast and sail a skiff and get away with it, but cogs are single masts with a single square sail. I always understood them to be larger and far more ancient though. Thanks for sharing.

Simple, yet pleasing to the eye at the same time. Fantastic work.

Looks good Walter  :thumbup:  Only suggestion I would make is to add a cone or something to the end of the main yard, just so it doesn't look hollow.  Other than that it's about as good as it can get with one of these boats!
