Hey
This is my first ship, which I built for a Lands of Classic-Castle Challenge (≈GoH  :laugh: ). It was pretty hard with the 180 Snot and at the end, I couldn't cover one black travis brick (You can't see it in the picture  :tongue: ). I would like to get your critsim on it, cause I want to build more ships/boats. It's just too much fun  :thumbup:
Thank you
Buurli

Looks very nice! The shape of the hull is excellent and the railings add a nice touch.
The sail is the best part in my opinion though, great job  :thumbup:

Sweet little boat Buurli_burri, the brick-built sail really makes it stand out.  :thumbup: If i may make one suggestion, it would be to build up the sides a bit more - she's looking very low in the water!

I agree, building boats and ships is pretty cool - (Speaking of which, i ought to get back to mine...  :look:) i hope to see some more from you!  :classic:

What a sail! Brilliant replica made of plates.
Being quite a purist, I really want all official LEGO ships to have sails like your one!

Thank you guys :blush: I never thought that the sail would be so good, since it was much easier to build than the ship itself.

Thank you! I only can agree. Official LEGO ships with these sails would be awsome, but there's one disadventage: It's not very solid and it's quite heavy, so the mast topples faster  :hmpf_bad: Otherwise it would be great  :cry_happy:

Thanks! I thought the same about the high of it, but I didn't have any brown slopes left. To avoid this effect, I first used another water technic, but I just didn't look as cool as this...  :wink:

Well done!  :thumbup: I'm not an expert on ships, but this one looks nice, and the brick-build sail is my favourite detail.

That cog is really great in all is parts, especially the hull. I hope you will have the good wind and you'll arrive safe!
