Skutsje will be the next boat according to weary workers at Dutch Harbor, who say that they were forced to do double shift or their peanuts would be taken away.
“C’mon, man! Don’t mess with our snacks!” Protested one worker.
The Skutsje is a challenging sail craft that moves at higher speeds and already has developed a fan base before its release. If you don’t know what a Skutsje is or looks like, head over to Dutch Harbor where there are some on display.

After a long wait the team at Dutch Harbor has released the Luxe Motor, an early 20th century barge with integrated GTFO capability. The ship has a list of features (go to the jump for the list), among which are a working crane and a live in cabin.
Analyse Dean, Dutch, Ape, and Rez Grey each had a part in the craft, which is already making it’s way into the lucrative river trade.
“We anticipate a ten percent increase in shipping from this year’s new boats,” said a representative at the Waterbank Maritime Union. “That means more activity at ports and more work for crews.”

A string of new boats are out from Rubber Bunny, Astral Tek, and Bandit (in world only), and boating enthusiasts are beside themselves with rumors that more great boats are on their way. Feral Marine is prepping for one (or is it it 3?) releases, Bandit has two more slated for summer (three if the crab ship finally breaks dry dock), and other manufacturers are racing to hit the summer boating market.
“This summer is the summer of water craft,” yelled the owner of Boating Monthly from his chair in a recently released hover boat. “Hang on for more goodies!”
This picture shows the Dixie Queen in the background, which is larger than the Dixie Belle.
Bandit Boats and the Mesh Shop have released the Dixie Belle (link), a 19th century paddleboat that has been expertly crafted and scripted.
Among the animations and spacious accommodations is a new addition to the boating world – a clever blackjack game. The boat is GTFO ready (no install required).
The Dixie Belle is only available in world at Dutch Harbor (link at right).

Locals of Dutch Harbor and commuting workers are hailing the newest development on the island sales center, saying it’s about time.
“You don’t know how long we’ve been here without a single restaurant,” said one local. “Dutch once started a recycling drive and he’s never had to by metal again for his projects. We’ve been living on canned food for years!”
Visitors and locals can now buy food at the Dutch Harbor Terminal building and a local snack stand, all alongside a new deepwater dock and a ferris wheel.
“We’re sorry to see some of our favorite customers go,” said a spokesperson for Waterbank Fish Company, “but we are sure that they will return to our fine seafood products very soon.”
A new teaser for an upcoming release of the Dixie Belle came from Dutch Harbor (link), and Waterbank literati are calling it the best fiction they’ve seen since Forgier’s testimony on embezzlement.
“The style of the writing and the dialogue really capture your imagination,” said Theolonious Sun, a member of the Mark Twain fan club and Waterbank book reviewer. “Well quoted Analyse!”
Buyers interested in GTFO enhanced two masted ships will be thrilled with the long awaited release of the Mary Celeste. She is available only at Dutch Harbor, where you can also demo.
Long time readers may recall that the Celeste was part of an exhibit at Dutch Harbor several years ago (link to WN article).
