Ketch "North Carolina"






Posted Image Posted Image





Hi everyone!  :pir-classic:

Yeah! Finally I managed to release a ship built for ages! I do not know why I decided to build a ketch. Maybe it is precisely because of its outward disproportion. But due to its design, thus it is able to withstand the terrible impact that occurs when heavy cannonballs shoot from the mortar. So, perhaps it is crooked, but the force of the shot is very distructive.  :pir-sweet:

Great ship! Though, I have a thought that the British might have taken her over and left the American flag up top.

Awesome bomb ketch Corioso, she'll be a terror to enemy shipping.  :jollyroger:  I do think the cannons are a bit large for the deck though, and if you reduced them in size or just got rid of them (bomb ketches often weren't otherwise armed) then you could make a hatch cover like on the Grenado. Anyways, a great ship, and I can't wait for your next project.

This is fantastic! The mortar, specially, is amazing. I love the colourscheme and the tiled floor Posted Image Great job on this ship!

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

hey, this ship looks really nice and reminds me of the admiral forster by, well, you^^   i have a question, can the mortar be turned around a little? because otherwise the 90kg canonload would hit the front rigging and sail, would it not?

Very nice, I love the dark brown deck and that mortar... awesome.
Just out of interest, what do you mean exactly with disproportion ? I don't know much about ketches (except that they're also referred to as bombers).
Anyway, I love it, it makes me want to install a mortar on one of my own ships as well  :pir_laugh2:

It wasn't my idea, I just didn't have an appropriate uniform. :pirate_sad2:

Yes, it must be mobile. Nothing bad is going to happen.  :pir-wink:

The mizzen mast looks very short to my mind.  :pir-sceptic:
