Raft with castaways

Recommended Posts

A merchant ship is smashed against a rock. The survivors (two soldiers and a sailor) find themselves hanging onto a part of the deck.
They manage to find some empty barrels and spars and a small sail, and use them to create a raft.
Afterwards they spend a long time drifting, and trying to sail in the direction of civilization.

1. How the heck do you have so many barrels?

2. How irresistible was the urge to make this raft?

I've actually wanted to make something of this sort, but I don't have the barrels for it. It's nice to see what it looks like. It's one of those things that once you have three barrels in your hand, the idea to make a raft is almost manifest.

Thanks for answering a question I subconsciously wanted to know the answer to.

1. I had to buy something more to get a BrickLink order to work, so I added 100 barrels. (Somehow it seemed like a good idea at the time, it always do... :) )

2. Very - I already had the rigging more or less ready, but was missing a ship to test it on.
