Very long boat (or long2 boat) is the long long version of the boat. When combined with a block, it can be used as a splitter that turns one glider into three.


Very long boat is the twenty-seventh most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than boat-ship-tie but more common than tub with tail.[1] It is also the thirty-sixth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.[2]
