A ship is composed of a plastic miniature, base, pegs, a ship token, and ID tokens.
Some plastic miniatures extend beyond their plastic base. For this reason, the miniature does not affect any game mechanics. The miniature may overlap obstacles and hang over the edge of the play area without issue.
If a miniature would touch another miniature or disrupt a ship's movement, the players should add or remove one peg from the base to prevent this contact. Otherwise, the players can temporarily remove the miniature from its base until ships have moved to allow it to be returned.
