A fantastic set with only one drawback: the mast with crow's nest. It breaks. It is almost impossible to find a set with the mast intact. Maybe it has always been like that or maybe it became brittle over time. Mine was intact when I got it, but it didn't survive long. When I find glue that works I will update this post. I have tried glueing it twice now with 2 different glues. The mast is some sort of rubbery plastic, I don't quite know what material it is made from.
