Believe it or not but this took less than 20 minutes to put together. The basic frame is a slightly more basic version of the one I used for Ratchet.
The idea of a "Boatformer" has been knocking about in my head for a long time. But the perfectionist in me didn't want to share something that looked more like a space ship than a ship ship...
Of course there are gaps to accommodate the transformation, and from the wrong angle the head is clearly visible in boat mode, but overall I think it isn't too bad.
I may look to see if there are some Hasbro or Bandai boat-bots out there that I could mod this into, but at the moment I've done no research on the subject.

I did a little research earlier of "boatbots" but while I was editing the list or links my laptop died and I lost it all. Not willing to repeat the whole process again I can confirm that he does bear a vague similarity to the robot form of the pretender Splashdown and to a japanese exclusive figure Waver. So for now he's been rechristened "My own" Splashdown.

Neat! Looks great in both forms!
Thanks. For the scale I was a little worried people might not see that it was a boat, the upper deck is very stylised, but having said that, I've seen Creator designs that were less detailed with more bricks.
Thanks everyone, I'll get around to thanking individuals later. I just wanted to point out to anyone who missed it that I've now added a little animated gif to demonstrate the transformation in action.
