"I bought this as a birthday gift for myself a little while ago. I built it pretty quickly with my son and took it for a test float in the tub. Overall, I really loved the features of the set. The colors are bright and flashy, not much unlike real racing sailboats. The movable rudders, sails and keels on such a relatively small set are great to have. I typically get the really big Technic sets for their extra attention to detail, but was impressed with the level of detail packed into this relatively smaller set! The loss of a star is attributed solely to the fact that the hulls aren’t entirely waterproof. The boat was in the tub for just 10-15 mins, but I noticed that it was draining water when I took it out. Made me glad I didn’t try letting it float on the lake first...wouldn’t have enjoyed fishing it from the bottom. I understand the complaints some have voiced about it being hard to display, but I think it would actually be pretty easy to fashion a LEGO stand out of spare parts to lift the boat so it’s not sitting so precariously. I suppose it could have been built into the set, but then it would have cost another ~$10. In the end, I would recommend this set to others - just keep in mind that it will take on water during extended water excursions."
