This is my crab boat, I built it when I was 11. it took a month to complete! For those of you who have seen Deadliest Catch you should or may know I modeled after The Wizard. I was tring to model it after The Northwestern, my favorite ship, but I couldn't get it to work out right. It has all the equipment: a crane, the captains and crews quarters, 2 pots (More Coming Soon!), and ice breaking tools.
About this creation
Here is a picture of the 3-man crew working. One is reeling in a crab pot while another is sorting the crab from a previous one. Also, one is using the crane to load another pot onto the launcher.
This is the captains quarters, it is my favorite part! Captain Kevin is watching the crew from above. He has alot of computers, my favorite is the one with the droid arm front panel! If you enlarge the picture and look closely, you may be able to see the wakie talkie on the roof.
Here is the crews qaurters. It has angled hinges all the way around for the crew to lay back and relax. also there is 3 cups of coffee on the table and if you look closely to the right, you can see a small grill!
Here is the crew(It's a little dark but it was the best I could do). Starting from the left, the on with the wolf shirt is Captain Kevin. The one with the cowboy hat is Greg, he's the deck leader. Next is Alex, he's the one with the black hat, but without the beard. He's a greenhorn to the crabing way of life. Finaly we have Bill, he has the most experience crabing and may soon have a spot in the captains chair of The Speed Demon.
These are the 2 crab pots used on the boat. For those of you who may not know, crab pots are specialy designed cages that crabers use to catch the crab in. I will soon be geting more pots (they will probably be black) so check back soon!
Its great because you managed with no base for the boat.I dont have one either.2 christmas's ago I beged my mom and dad for the city lines boat set.But they didn't get me it.Well,I was still happy with what I got.
