The **6-in-a-row Cordership** is a diagonal spaceship that was discovered by Dave Greene on March 13, 2010 while trying to construct a lightweight spaceship rake.^{[1]}

The spaceship consists of the two wings from a 7-in-a-row Cordership, without the central switch engine that requires a 48-tick timing offset between the wings. Like the 5-in-a-row Cordership which also includes one of these wing structures, a simple tub catalyst can be set up to extract one or more gliders from the ship as it passes, by suppressing the creation of a block along the edge.
