Long boat is a longer version of a boat that was discovered by the JHC group in 1970.
The long boat is the eighth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than ship but more common than ship-tie.. It is also the tenth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue. It is the second most common 7-bit still life, being less common than the loaf but more common than eater 1.
Long boat can be constructed using only 3 gliders; its first glider synthesis was found by John Abbott.
