I made this crab boat about a year ago. My brother-in-law is a crab fisherman and lives in Kodiak. When it came to building a big Lego project that my wife would tolerate I picked a crab boat. Since the best place to see lots of crab boats is Deadliest Catch you'll see parts of every boat from the show. I tried to count the studs on this from the pictures and I'm ball-parking it at 90 studs. I may make another one of these in the future, I can see where I would do things differently on a future crab boat.
I love the pots, thats cool!! Mine is horrible, compared to this masterpiece.

This is a great build. I am getting ready t do something like this on LDD, I can't decided between a crab boat or a large lobster boat. What I like the most about your boat, is how you chose a nice middle scale, relative to the mini figs, but didn't over do it. Very nice! 5 stars! Chris
