Modular because you could have a smaller coastal ship like this.

Or a much larger ship.

Hard to do it justice with the current pieces.
Very imaginative...once we've seen it I bet the Trogs take off and we have fleets!

A DM in my group used the MBS pieces several years back to make a ship for our adventure. It functionally worked, but was a bit odd with the timber frame theme. What we needed for a fantasy style medieval ship would be 2x2 pieces with clinker built walls and wood decking running parallel to the walls. With these pieces you can build a pretty good looking ship: Straight Corner, Curved Corner, Wall, Floor, Wall with Porthole / Gun Hatch, Hatch (instead of a door), ship ladders (steep stairs), low walls, low walls with Gun opening, mast holder floor, mast pass-through floor, mast/yards, ratlines, bowsprit, and paddlewheel. Accessories could include hanging hammocks, galley, cannons, hogsheads, orlop, brig, cabins table & bed, longboats, and the proverbial plank.
Here, here.

A modular ship would be wonderful. And it would adapt to 15mm better than the buildings.

I would not back a ships only KS to any great level, but it sounds good for next Ks as an add-on. The tudor ship is great, but I am sure STefan could think of something more specific and better

Although it does show potential, I'm uncertain of just how modular it could be. I mean there is the middle part, but the ends are always going to be the same. I don't see how this could build up.

Very cool build regardless. Thank you for sharing. However I'm not convinced a full set should be devoted to this.

Well done Chris!
I made the suggestion for ship pieces that could be swapped around back durring KS2, but it didn't get any momentum. Your pic really shows the potential.

How about a Pirate ship add-on pack in a similar style to the wooden floored buildings from KS3 with fully wooden pattern walls at about 2/3 full height (7/8 inch) that a 33mm pirate can look over?Ship_20170522_small.jpg
There could be options for the drop in walls for cannon ports or solid wood or small portholes that could double as oar ports for a galley or viking longship. Different front and end options could be made for a cog or galley or longship and a central hatchway in the center could optionally be replaced with a stub mast or grill hatch cover (small lattice trapdoor from KS4).
That's a great visual representation. Given that display of modularity, then wooden pirate ship pieces could also be utilized as dock or wooden structure pieces within a castle, or dungeon, or maybe even a large wooden bridge. I hope DF sees this thread!
