The set comprises of 280 parts and retails for 34.99 GBP / 44.99 US$ making it fairly expensive price - per - piece. For your money you get a fishing boat, a float-plane and three minifigures, two fishermen and the pilot of the Coast Guard plane. As seems to be the usual way with Lego, the three figures are made up of pieces used elsewhere but are unique in their combinations here. The rarest piece is the grey hair which is only used in one other set, namely 75014 - Star Wars 'Battle of Hoth'.
The boat is quite a nice design. The hull is made from one large single piece so there is less there than it seems. The boat really floats on water thanks to the shape of the hull and it being all one piece, something I refuse to test out! I like the color scheme of light grey, brown and green, for some reason i think it suits the shape and function of the boat. Nice as it looks there are no functioning parts on the boat.

So in summary, both the boat and plane are nicely designed but a float-plane that doesn't float and has no room for the people it rescues seems a bit useless! ☺ Fairly expensive and a bit low on playability this is not a must-have set but fills a need in the City Coat Guard and I'm happy enough to have it!
