Well, here is a ship I made. Nothing special compared to the ones I've seen here, but I like it.

It is The Majestic

The sails are custom, but the flag is by Col.Whipstick.

And the minifigs ( The one in the middle and left have custom hats and eyepatches put on.)

It's a mighty fine effort Mr Axle but it's a bit difficult to see the ship because of the picture quality.  It might pay to take another picture of the ship in constant lighting, I wouldn't recommend taking pictures of something in dim lighting with sun light flooding in from the background.

This looks like a very seaworth vessel!
I suggest to take some pics in daylight (in the garden for example).
Then we can better see all the details of this fine pirate ship.

Very nice job.  You made a great ship without the regular hull pieces.  I think the best part is the sail,  it looks perfect. *y*

Making a judgement from these pictures wouldn't be really fair would it? I shall comment on the ship when there are better pictures. Although from what I can see it doesn't look bad!

The pictures of the custom hats are quite good though. How did you make those?

Cool to see how people can improvise without having the brown hull parts.  I'm guessing you don't have that much Pirate Lego which is a good thing when it comes to MOCing as it encourages greater creativity, the sort of thing we saw more in the days when Basic Lego was the only thing going.

What did you use to make the customised hat and eye patches?  I'd like to see some more metalic stuff get into the Pirates range and really wish Lego had made silver helmets for the Armada forces rather than or in addition to the black helmets which don't feel right for Conquistadors for me.

Well, the Eyepatches and hats were made from the same material. Name tag paper!
But I made it a bit harder. but I forget how. :-(

Nice work captain Axle.
Very innovative on work with the eye patches and hats. *y*  

There is a reserved parking space in row 39, column D in the Index of MOC Ships for this fine ship. X-D

We don't always have the luxury of better pictures so we better make do with what we have.

Is it possible to get a close-up picture of the flag?

You need more color consitency. It's just too colorful. Also the back is a little bulky and you should add some windows facing the back, it looks a little breezy in there. ;) She be a fine vessel other than that.

It looks like a lovely ship, and the white and red stripe make it look very nice. A little too nice, in fact some slight modifications could turn this into a nice little modern boat. *sweet* Still, it's a neat pirate ship. *y*
