You might have seen it in the last epsiode of EB pirates, but here is a full presentation.
The ship's name is the Seagull, it's a 6 cannon sloop used for smuggling purpouses by captain Steve.

Awesome.  I really like the custom work you did on the sails and netting.  Is there anything below deck?

Another fine vessel from the Green headed captain!

Only thing is the bow doesn't look quite right...

Posted Image

It looks a bit flat at the front.  Some slopes bridging the gap between the hull and the bowsprit  should easily overcome that.

Thanks, there is a small hold below to hold the smuggling goods. A picture of it is in the BS folder.

Typical late 18th century coastal sloop used for smuggling and by the coastguard to catch smugglers, to even the ships savvy?
The coasts in the Carribean were actually swarmed with these by the end of the 18th century.

Another amazingly built ship.  You are truly a ship building master.  One thing I noticed thought. Didn't sloops of this size have a tiller instead of a helm (wheel)?

Thanks!
Though you are propably right about the tiller, by the late 18th century more and more ships were getting wheels.
And i think it looks cool :pir-grin:

The intriciate work you put into the sails and rigging pays off Green Captain, it adds that extra layer of detail.

Might this vessel appear in a certain comic in the future or is that a surprise?

Could you kill my co worker that i really hate right now instead? Thanks in advance! :pir-grin:
If you have any specific questions on building techniques, do not hesitate to ask. :wink:


I offer to make these sails for your ships, price is approx. 2, 50 euro per sail.
The take about 30 minutes to make one, so it's actually pretty cheap.

thanks a lot

yep I keeped that in mind, that's not expensive  I think I'll ask you for a future project, for a nice ship I want to build,  but as long as I don't have a job , I'll not have enough money to buy bricks to build it, and I need a lot of pirate stuff and brown bricks, so I think it will be next year, If you're yet here ^^

Btw, If I kill your co-worker , can I come work with you ? :P ( depends on where the work is based ^^ )

PS:  I love your Fort Espérance

Bah! What rubbish. Ever seen the front of Cook's Endeavour? I actually like the bow. It looks like what a small ship should.

What an interesting ship Captain!

Once I finally finish L'Orient (probably during this week) I have plans to build a small ship much like this one. I've got several small hulls and they need to get a purpose. Nice work and very inspiring. There's nothing bad about this ship. The shape, sails, colors, rigging are all designed with the kind of professionalism we've come to expect from you.

I know this is an older thread, but I had to just comment on it and let you know just how cool I think this ship is.  It's a beauty!  Proof that small ships can be just as fun to look at as their bigger brothers!

Your MOC is pretty accurate if you look at the ship you've based your MOC on. I like to see when you use only 2 hull pieces, you still can build an magnificent ship! I like the colour sheme and even that is the same as the model.
I love that guy who smokes the pipe. :pir_laugh2:
