Very long ship (or long long ship) is the long long version of the ship.


It is the twenty-ninth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than tub with tail but more common than table and table.[1] It is also the thirty-fourth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.[2]


On March 28, 2007 Dean Hickerson found a 4-glider synthesis of this still life.[3]
