The construction of the ship is much more detailed than I expected from just the box art. It cannot float unlike the container ship due to gaps between the bricks in the hull. I have just about every other harbor set from this era The boom gate is operated with a telephone dial and have red lights. Thanks again for the review! I think there is a place for the giant hulls so boats can float, but to have one that is all instrucyions of bricks is outstanding.
