     Well, I don'y think there are any official Kender ships, as the little
guys tend to lose interest in a project that takes as long as building a
ship.  However, I looked through the Net Ships Book and found a few official
and new ships that might be appropriate for small crews of small people:

     Angelship* (kobold)
     Beetle/Stag Beetle (any)
     Blade/Arrow (goblin/kobold)
     Catamaran (human)
     Flitter (elf)
     Hummingbird* (human)
     Mosquito (any)
     Porcupine* (goblin)
     Skiff (Arilou, er, rock hoppers)
     Whelk (non-tinker gnome)
     Wreckboat* (any)
     Yacht (human)

     The ones marked with * have their deckplans in my directory.

     I know they exist, but I don't have the address ... anyone, anyone?

     Nobody says they're evil ... just bloody annoying.  Every party that I
have been in that had a kender in it has taken twice as long to get anything
done, because the kender is continually handling important party items.
People tend to get sick of that soon.  Very soon, especially after the
second or third party kender.  To give you an idea of how bad it was, one
party I joined didn't want my character Guxx in it just because he _looked_
like a kender (he was a human, and was then body-switched into a brownie,
which was then morphed into a kender, just so he wouldn't get so stepped on).

     How about a "Wanderlust/Curiosity" helm - any kender that sits on it
has the desire to explore _far_ away places.  While sitting there, the
kender is entertained by a magically-generated ever-changing personal light
show, guaranted to hold a kender's attantion for 8 hours at a time.  Gives
the ship an SR or 2; can be linked like a Series helm.
