I would also say the third, given not only the bounding box, but also the fact that that 28-cell phase is the most contiguous.M. I.

I think zdr should choose, though, whenever s/he happens to come back online.
This is insane, by the way! I definitely agree that it looks like something out of Morley or another Life-like rule. Congrats, zdr, and hopefully we'll be able to use your method to find more ships like this one (does "there may be bugs in gfind" mean you developed your own search program/tweaked gfind or something?)
Also, congratulations to zdr!
