Closer view of some of the decorations from various scenes, so well made – top notch quality. I think I would use the fishing pose quite a lot as I do enjoy a bit of 7seas now and again !

Come sail away with me

Free boat!!

I’ve been searching forever to find a boat I can actually sail, there’s lots around but they always seem to be overly speedy or just plain outta control! Maybe I’m just a lousy driver, but I’m so glad I didn’t give up ! I have not only found a few vessels that I can use with ease – but they are all free! Above is the simplest design I came up with, just a little wooden motorboat, smashing details on it and really low prim. Super easy to handle with three speeds, and lovely just to sit in. It can carry three people and I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box to find all manner of gifts, shorts, bikini’s etc. Made by Berdav Marine who make some really stylish crafts.

Free boat !

I nabbed this to see what it was like, I’ve not owned an industrial looking boat before! This is the Michie Marine express made by Michie Marine. What a well-built item, its got a fishing chair with animation at the rear, it even gives you a rod to wear!. This will sit quite a few people as there are plenty of spaces to go around. For a larger build its ever so easy to control.

Free boat !!!!

My absolute favourite from what I’ve found so far (and I mean by this, you’d have to drag it from my cold claw-like dead hands) is this by Michie Marine. The SV240 is sublime, I found it so simple to manoeuvre, even in the small area of water I have at home. 28 prims and I count 10 seats! You can personalise it by touching the deck, its got sixteen colours. Really lovely poses for sunbathing, flopping about, proper seats, and of course the drivers position, which has a dead brilliant animation !

Free boat dispenses rideable wakeboards!

Player and I took this baby out last night for a test drive, what fun ! If you touch the wakeboard on the side, it actually drops one down into the water, hop on and off you go – don’t worry about prims, they de-rez if you don’t get on them – you do have to be in an area where you can rez though to use this option.

Free decor boat & trailer

It also comes with a trailer & boat decor piece – it’s a bit primtastic to be left out (well for ME it is as I’m always short on prims) The bopat itself isnt though – only 28 . Zan and I had a whirl on this boat today, she was impressed and even took the wheel  – Yes I did get a bit giddy *winks*…go treat yourself to some free fun, plenty of places that you can rez a boat and take off if you don’t have a home with access, actually I will look some up and post them here later for you ❤

Water Sports

SwollenCouple of picture rules broken here.  We don’t normally use wide pictures but I had to squeeze the lot in because how sexy is this lot of water crafts.  The boat I have blogged before but I’ll give you a brief description.  Comes from MLCC (Motor Loon Custom Cycles) and this model is called Looneta, amazing attention to details, comfortable kitchen, living room, bedroom, work desk, even a toiler and all  packed with poses, easy to use texture editing pack and all of that for a tiny 31 prims.  I’m not a boating person but since I bought this it’s been rezzed on my land and will be remaining there for as long as I have water.  If your tempted then there is a whole lot of photos of this boat on my Flickr and I’ll pop the link down on the bottom but this is a boat you have to see in SL in person to see how cool it is.

Swollen1WEEEEE.  Another photo rule bent here.  Usually we like to show the items as clearly as possible but I just wanna have fun. 2 Different styles of  Jet Skis both have a menu but you have to be standing on it to operate the menu which allows you to change the speed and colour of your craft. Long gone are the days when land and water vehicles  were so unwieldly that you would spend most of your time crashing but since they come from EoD (End Of Daze) then you wouldn’t really expect them to crash and I’ve had a lovely time pottering around on them.  Perfectly proportioned, sleek, easy to handle, low prim.  Both Vs1 and V2 come with a menu choice of 6 colours, 2 sits, a choice of speed.  The Jet Skis are on the wall outside but you must pop in to check out the furniture n stuff cos it’s all great quality, slim, unfussy, well textured and attractive.

Now for the OMG factor because I tried to find a sim to ride the jet skis over to check out how well they did on sim crossing and sorry I didn’t find a suitable area to try it out but what I did find was LOADS of boating sims packed with the all the boats from Motor Loon.  Looks like I’m not the only one in love with his qualities.

Fricken Awesome.

I meant what I said in a previous post and on payday I contacted Motor Loon and got myself a boat.  This is a proper boat and not the little wooden dingy we all pick up along the way in SL.  Check out this picture to check out the awesomeness.

Folm

OK so I have played a little bit with windlight but you can too so can’t you just picture yourself in this scene.  All other photos will be taken in the simple Nams Prim and Skin setting which we should ALL use because it is very similar to the normal SL lighting but less harsh and you don’t have to use a facelight to look stunning.

HelmMy RL knowledge about boating is lacking  I can use a paddle and that’s about it but I’ve checked out the menu and glanced at the easy to follow instructions and although a lot of it I allowed to go right over my head it’s easy to see that if you’re an in world sailor or just a poser like me this is a boat for both.  You get a box full of texturing which   means you can change a lot of the texturing on the boat from the hull to the flag and even I managed to change the flag to the Pure Logo.

KitchenLets think “outside of the box” as they say.  If you own a tiny plot with the minimum of Prims then you could make this your home because as compact as it is it has everything inc the kitchen sink because everything comes to a tiny 32prims which means anyone could own a boat of this quality. If you don’t want to sink any of your land when you rezz your boat it comes on a low primmed dry dock stand, a lovely touch.

Nav system

A lot of thing on here are a simple touch control even the lighting, curtains, hatch or from the menu although the menu is mainly for the sailing bit.  Whats shown here is the steps down to the living quarters and you can see the radio and even ………………………..

Snapshot_038… Ta Dah the toilet!

BedroomBedroom is through a little crawl space under the the rear of the boat or is that stern? From what I can tell it’s just a few poses I don’t even know it it has a cuddle menu in it but not everything needs it nor does everyone want it so that’s not an issue.

Bedroom2One of the poses is of you lying on your belly looking out of the little door into the living area which is so cute.  The whole boat comes packed with poses and the blurb says “Smooth moving parts (doors/hatches etc) and support for up to 32 passengers all with individual animations (though I may not recommend that many for sim crossings). Boat also features working sails (luffing and shaping to wind), automatic spinnaker, working folding prop, working inboard motor (you can flip up the staircase to expose it), working cabin lights, deployable fenders, working anchor and lots lots more”.  Don’t let any of the sailing jargon put you off if your a boating noob like me it’s still so easy.

LivingroomLast photo I promise.  It was so hard to chose which photos to use because they all turned out so well.  This of course it the seating area and you can see that yet again although this is a compact boat it’s damned roomy enough.  The table in the centre is drop leafed so one click and one side is lowered another click and down goes the other side so  it’s even easy to walk around.

As I’ve said this is a real sailing boat and so I braved the open seas and YES it works.  I will have to read the instructions a bit better but all I know is even I managed to steer it and it was FUN.  You get a great AO of you steering the helm and the lovely relaxing sound of waves crashing on the front bit, prow?, even crests of small waves as you cut through the open water  and I deliberately went through 3 sim crossings and not a single issue.

Thanks to a Pure reader who pointed out to me that you can pick up a demo model of the Oceanic from the MP I had gotten a taster of what it would be like but in all honestly I and even  the Pure reader would say PAY the difference and get the Loonetta.  She maybe a bit more expensive than the Oceanic but she definitely has the updated edge to her and is so worth the extra (Loonetta 3500 Oceanic 3000).

So the MP to get the Oceanic demo and the inworld LM so you can have a better look at the Loonetta  for yourself. Almost forgot to say that MLCC  is even bigger on the bikes and cars a real petrol head paradise.
