Came out well for my first proper ship, I think :pir-wub:

Very Nice! I like the Cannon Bow Ring connector. Its like they can slide the cannons along, Like fire pumps!

It's a nice shape with the Curvy stern and the cartoonised shape! It looks very much like nicked Navy vessel.  :pir_laugh2:

Excellent! A true pirate brig, love the colors and the sails! Oh and of course the tiled deck! Great job, does it have a cabin??

That is just an epic vessel! I'm very impressed! :thumbup:
Both her shapes and rigging is perfect, as well for the details. I think the bow is a bit low, but the stern is a piece of art.

And of course:

You did indeed! This is an awesome ship! I really like your sails and the tiled deck is great as well.
The sides of the ship are full of nice (coloured-)details.
If you want to improve it, I think you could lower the spanker sail a bit (so the top yard is on the same level as the crow's nest), and turn the lifeboat 180 degrees.
For the rest I think nothing should be done about it, it's a perfect MOC :thumbup:
Hm... I see I was too late to blog it :pir-sceptic:

Very nice ship SlyOwl. The curves on it look really good and so do the tiled deck and the custom sails. I also like the use of technic pieces in the rigging.

Beautiful work!  Very unique in it's design, yet very realistic as well!  The Best Brig I've ever seen. It wouldn't happen to have an interior would it?

A beauty of a ship Sly! I love your work on the custom cannon, and the sails just came out perfectly :pir_laugh2: I'm going to have to get to work on my sister ship schooners soon...so many people churning out excellent ships to compete with 'em :pir-tongue:

Fantastic MOC SlyOwl! There are very few things I don't like about it. Your lines are clean, your rigging is supurb (although you cheated and didn't tie the ratlines) and your colours are brilliant. But some things to think about:
  • The spanker sits to high on the main mast.
  • The spritsail is too far forward on the bow sprit, and it would only have a lower yard if it had a second spritsail, else it would just be held in place by rope.
  • The catheads are too small, and too low. Perhaps try extending them out and bringing them up a little.
  • Try adding a second vertical part on each side of the headrails.
Other than that, I think it's brilliant! And she certainly has some bad-ass cannons on board! What is the piece holding the lantern up above the helm?

Beautiful ship!
I really like the color scheme and the stern looks beautifully designed.

I also love the figurehead and that yellow, rope-like thing in the bow. What is that called?

Impressive ship.  I love the tiled deck, and your alternate cannons.  At first I was like, Hmmm, it's just BSB, but it's not, it looks much larger and those sails are super impressive.  Really great work, I don't know how you guys creat your own ships like this.  Really nice work!

HAHA! I love this boat! Everyone is building French, English, Blue or Red Boats and here we get a good ole fashion pirate ship! I really enjoy the fact that it is not so big that it looks gaudy. Also, the attention to detail does not look out of place. I reallt enjoy this and have been inspired in a few spots for ideas I would like to use on my first major ship construction.

I really enjoy the correct position of the lifeboat, the layout of the gun ports, and the bow. I think the bow looks simple and yet elegant. A closer look reveals how intricate it really is.

I really love the ship Slyowl, so terribly good for a first 'proper' one :thumbup: .
It seems Captain Blackmoor and Bonaparte respectively defeated me into frontpaging this on both Classic-Pirates and Eurobricks.

Thanks for sharing this beauty!
