Ooh, we haven't had many ships. I like this one. Lots of deck space, but also lost of space with the undercover rooms. Otherwise, very sleek and cool.

A gem from my childhood! Good memories.

I picked up the hull from this set at a tag sale years ago and it's been one of my most treasured finds... it's nice to finally know what set it came from!

I remember getting this set like a million years ago when my cousin gave all his old Lego on to me. Still have the hull and most of the parts to it along with all the figs, though the hull decals haven't quite withstood the test of time (and all the times I played "shipwreck" in the pool. ;) Very nostalgic.

The Sea Cutter? Silly boat, you can't cut liquids!

(Bad joke is bad.)

Ah, the golden days when LEGO boats actually floated on water.

@AustinPowers, last year we had 3 boats floating on the water. You can look this by find sets with tags "Floats On Water".

Beautiful rescue boat with nice colors. I miss the good old days.

@kinggregus: true, but apart from those tiny Juniors boats, only the fishing boat actually floated, and not all that well actually. Certainly not in the way those stable and large old boats with their bottom weight pieces did.

This is a simple ship, but there's a lot to be said for that. Very cool.

@AustinPowers We still get those large boats, they're incorporated into City now. We got one with the Coast Guard sets last year (#60167), Arctic in 2014 (#60062), Police Boat in 2016 (#60129), Fire Boat in 2016 (#60109), the Deep Sea Exploration Boat in 2015 (#60095), there are many more from the past 5-10 years. Lego only used to give us like 3 floating boats every 5 years or so in the 70-90's. I think that number has actually gone up.

I love these unitary hull boats, especially this one with it's length and prominent bow (was this set's hull previously used for a cargo ship or new for this set?). Sadly this was many I missed during my long Dark Ages. Looking at this I can't help but dream of modifying it into a pleasure cruiser. Oh well, I guess I'll eagerly await 31083 this summer (if it floated it would be the definition of perfection)!

Ps. Nevermind, I was curious enough to answer my own question. So according to BrickLink the hull piece was also used in red in 1987's Fire Fighter (#4020), and in black in 1991's Police Patrol (#4021).

Thank you Brickset for this. I recently acquired a couple of thousand parts from a friend of my cousins, and this boat hull piece was in it. However, upon initial glancing I had thought it was from another set, that was, until now. Now I know that this set was in it, thanks to the random set of the day. :)

Easily one of my favourite sets growing up. I should go build it again soon!

This is the worst set ever produced. No dogs were Included.
