Ahoy mateys!

This is the sunken ship I have built for the Pirates display in the  2º TomarLego. You can see it underwater here.

The jellyfish are great, as is the transition from pre-fab hull to timbers :thumbup:
I also like the spattering of coral and various sea creatures integrated into the wreck.
A few cross-timbers (between the arches) would have been nice to see (even something as trivial as a jumper plate on the inside), and the pre-fab hull could have done with a bit of development.

Shipwrecks are some of my favourite MOCs, and this one ranks highly by me, particularly when underwater  :pir-wub:

To the barricades!

I love this too.  It looked so good underwater.  Shipwrecks are very cool indeed.  The jelly fish are probably my favorite!

Which sets do the jellyfish originate from?  They seem to work well in submerged Pirate MOCs.

They are custom built Mister Phes, with this and this part. (In transparent blue of course). Nice MOC, well done. :pir-classic:

Well blow me down and call me Cat Gut Mary, you're indeed correct Captain Zuloo.

I must say that technique is rather effective.

Admiral M was right. I used a "Minifig Cook's Hat" on top of a sea weed.  :pir-cry_happy:

I think you're right! There's a big difference between the pre-fab hull and the rest of the moc.
If I would built it now, I would do those changes...

Thanks guys for the comments!  :thumbup:

Well Captain Zuloo usually isn't right    (:pir-tongue:  at Captain Zuloo)

So Tomar is a city in Portugal and it has its own LEGO event?

Well now, that was just totally uncool. :pir-hmpf_bad:  :pir_laugh2:
Hey, at least I got the seaweed part correct. I've never actually seen that midget chef hat in my life, only the Erdbeereis version.

The first thing I did was go to Wikipedia and lookup Tomar.

It has some mighty fine historic sites I see, like the Castle of Tomar:
