A brief introduction to the fleet





For my first post, I would like to briefly introduce the Green Sea Fleet in chronological order. There will be more detailed descriptions later.

Currently, there are 4 active vessles in the Green Sea Fleet. The oldest is the Bremen. Built back in the summer of 1996, she preceeds the rest of the fleet by far. She is also the smallest, at a mere 3 feet in length. She is based on the 1929 German passenger liner of the same name.

More recently, the "Kamloops" was completed on July 4th, 2003. She tops out at 4 feet of length. She is based on the ill-fated 1924 Great Lakes frieghter of the same name.

Around the same time that the "Queen Mary 2" sank (more on her later), the S.S. "America" was built in late spring 2004. She is 55 inches long, and based on the 1940 American passenger liner by the same name.

So far, the grandest and most impressive of the fleet so far is the "Ecstasy". She is based on the Carnival cruise ship of the same name. She tops out at a hefty 8-feet-long. She is the newest of the fleet, having made her maiden voyage on September 4th, 2005.

All of these ships will be discussed in greater detail in future posts. Please look forward to it!

I have a question. If you could respond, that would be great. What exactly do you mean by fiberglassing the hull? How do you do it?
