I haven't posted in a while now having been busy with many things however I wanted to share today a thought with you all...
I recall a decade ago that the Black Seas Barracuda was actually named Dark Shark, has anybody seen brochures or any other official Lego products that have that classic ship carrying the name of Dark Shark instead of the Barracuda?
And if there was a name change when did that happen? Or is this part of calling a product with one name in North America and with another in Europe and the rest of the world?
Or am I mistaken all together here?

Plus I bought my set on a trip to the UK at the time of its release from Hamleys. So, it must be the orginal...

Black Falcons Fortress - Castle Draco
Dragon Masters Castle - Castle Carreg
The Imperial Shipo was called the 'The Sea Lion'
There was 'Port Jamaica', 'The Black Skull', 'The Sea Vulture' etc.
If anyone is interested in the names changes I could write out a whole list. I sometimes think we in the UK got better names

I'm surprised you guys haven't found this already, but in my time at Classic-Pirates.com I created a page with this information on it, with the set inventory, instructions etc.
The names on this page:
- Dark Shark (England)
- Vascello dei pirati (Italy)
- Barracuda de la Mer Noire (Canada)
- Piratenbrigantine (Germany)
- Requin Noir (France)
- De Zeeschuimer (Netherlands)
