It has a very nice side profile. was wondering if I could get a look inside to see how much is hollowed out? I've found a couple of boat stones with a nice side view but the insides were not hollowed out. sure hope yous is. my friend has a perfect one and he displays it in a suiban with sand and a pole laid diagonally across it's mid section.

but both are very nice examples of this style...Basketball

Hi Hung-Tran...  

Repeating a comment from last year regarding the traditional boat-shaped suiseki...
Meihinten thread 2012, Chris wrote:The peeled granite kurama-ishi crescents are best-known as boat stones, but could arguably be appreciated as "water pool"/mizutamari stones.  

An article in California Aiseki Kai magazine suggested any "boat-shaped stone"/funagata-ishi appreciated as landscape-view stone (the most narrow limit of suiseki appreciation) should be read as a plain boat that has been partially submerged in still water (arguably, as a "landscaping folly").  Well-known Japanese gardens contain just such a plain, partially-submerged boat in pond--e.g., Nezu Museum garden, Tokyo-- linked HERE.  Combining the boat-shaped stone with water perceived in its interior (whether actually pooled or not) might add another level of consideration & feeling for boat-shaped suiseki observers.
For suiseki in this "plain boat" form, the prow is raised, which indicates the directional flow of the stone affecting placement in the suiban.  Note stone #40 in this year's Nippon Suiseki Meihinten...


In suiseki circles, a boat with a mast would be considered an object stone rather than a landscape view. The "Treasure Ship" (Takara-bune) representing good fortune is a masted boat seen with some frequency as an okimono and occasionally as a suiseki.

Sensei Chris!...cheers 
Now this is the kind of mind expanding informative dissemination,
I have come to depend on from you! Spot on!, on target and greatly appreciated!
Truly food for thought and contemplation...ThumbsUp 
#40 I to was enamored with it's great beauty, the thin almost egg shell quality!,
the length, projected direction, surface texture and ancient look are simply fabulous!...cyclops   
other than the shape and size of the suiban, I would have used a oval of a much larger size.
Having said that I am also aware of the difficultly of owning every perfect item needed...Like a Star @ heaven 
The Suiban and Sand colors however play out perfectly with this very impressive stone display.
Which by the way, I think one of Andre's kusamonos would help make it look even better...Basketball

Hi Stonener... This stone was sponsored by Kunio Kobayashi at this year's Meihinten. His tray choice was not due to lack of options. Perhaps, he wished us to imagine a boat partially submerged in a small pond (as in the Nezu Museum garden photo) with its option for locomotion cramped. It feels quite opposite the open-space perceived in art works of a lone boat returning to the Red Cliff edging Dongtian Lake.

I see a very old shipwreck, gone out of shape a long time ago, partly burried in sand, and filled with Water after the last tide...( the stone is filled with Water)
The collor of the suiban is very nice with the stone...the sice too, and the frame of the suiban is nice and firm to complete the pretty remains of the ship, that once had a firm frame it self.

The collor of the suiban is found in the stone, this is why I think the strong frame is nice.....does the collor not be found in the stone, is a more quiet frame maybe better....

Just a thought

Kind regards Yvonne
