I just wanted to update my previous comment , I'm currently in Florida on vacation and yesterday we went to Hollywood studios and I went on this ride twice it was awesome and I can say with certainty you replicated this ship perfectly!
"Clam chowder, clam chowder." Having grown up at Disneyland, we rode this thing all the time. While waiting in the interminably long line, we started listening to the background announcements. They honestly said "Clam chowder, clam chowder" and it's all I can think of when I see this. Don't worry, it's a wonderful thing. Ahhh, the memories. Perfect moc, you nailed everything about it!
