This is an impressive reboot.

I think this has the right scale, nothing too implausible and many of the smaller-end vessels sometimes overlooked in AUs. These are some of your best AU designs too and together it makes this the best version so far. I look forward to seeing how this progresses.

Well, quite many of these are OTL ships with just little reworking, armaments changes and so on. Actuall own designs here are only the Metallityöläinen class fast gunboats, the Spica derivate small destroyers and the Kansanvalta class minelayer. The Armoured ships are (atleast partially) based on real life Never-where's, altough I have had to make them work more on 1900-1910 timeframe rather than 1920-1930's where they are actually from.

Post war naval producement, Part I The ex-Kriegsmarine ships

After world War II, the Allies confiscated all Kriegsmarine ships and these were divided among the major allies, US, UK, Soviet Union and Novgorod. Finland recieved its small share from Novgorod who gradually disposed its stock along with the rest of the major navies. Two large minesweepers and numerious small crafts were purchased, mostly for the large minesweeping operations taking place in Finnish waters in 1945-1948.In Finnish service, they were armed accordingly and served trough their usefull career, some vessels surviving as far as 1980's! Despite the efforts, Finland was not able to gain major capital units from German booty, to replace the losses on Armoured ships and destroyers from the war.

Another excellent entry.
It makes visible Your determination to make on Your own as many ships as possible (MAL, MFP ;) ).

Well actually the version of the MAL ferries I wanted was not in the archive, and I had drawn MFP long time ago, but that was wrongly scaled (it was more close to the Yugoslavian crafts), so I decided to do a quick redrawn while I was at the spree there. The Raumboots are completely new drawings, and the M1935 and the Schnellboot are just reworked versions of my own orginals that used to be on the archive.

Very nice additions and very plausible backstories too.

nah, you have good AU. But yeah, small crafts are damn difficould. The ammount of time that it takes for good looking patrol boat is almost equal compared to an destroyer. Most of the time is going to figure out how exactly draw some wierd shapes within SB style and scale.
