The Hullcutter is
the backbone of many Martian fleets and is built - to roughly the same design
- in many different yards (hence the variation in design!).
Hullcuter is a 'Screw Galley' powered by the labour of the extensive crew turning
the twin propellers via a crankshaft running the length of the ship and routed
through a large fly-wheel.

This is the second
finished Hullcutter: it has a more rounded silhouette compared to the first ship,
with less substantial rams but taller masts. Crew on deck are busy loading and
firing guns: two Rogue guns a the front, two Heavy guns and a Lob gun in the centre
and a Rod Gun to the rear. Their is a sniping marine in the Flying Bridge and
the ship's Captain with the helmsman and ship's wheel on the lower Drag Bridge.
