Who will gain dominance over the sea?

This took quite a bit of work, I hope you enjoy!

Pretty much used all my Zen Magnets in this...so that's like 64 sets?

I looked at the timestamps, added the time it took to build the boats, set-up time....

Fun numbers for this video:
-Average movement of boat per frame: 2.5 mm
-Shot at 15 Frames per second
-25 hours to make this video
-1265 photos to make this video
-8 frames for each cannon shot

Other fun facts for this video:
-Water was made with a bed sheet on top of a comforter, so the surface would be soft enough to look like water and allow boats to rock back and forth.
-Metal plates were placed under the "water" to support the sea monster
-Tutorial IS AVAILABLE for the boats, check out some of my older videos. The boats used in this video are a bit modified off the boats in the tutorial, but mostly the same.
-Cannon fore was simulated with small cotton Q-tips of varying amounts of cotton. 8 different q-tips were used for each cannon shot.
-Camera was on full manual (except for white balance) during the filming.
