I havent named it yet, but I do have my first picture of the ship I was promising. I'll have better pictures later, this one will just be able to give you all an idea of it.

There has been a Phes Edit in this thread to ensure this MOC gets as many responses as it possibly can.

What I do like are the colours - a really nice combination.

When I first this ship saw it I was reminded of a steamboat.
I think I'm with Mr Dreamweb and Mr Oo7 on this one - the upper deck is a bit much. So I suppose to balance the ship better you could remove it or make the ship longer. Of course making things longer uses more pieces so its probably easier to remove the second deck.
But don't modify it because of what we write, I think the question is are you happy with how it turned out Mr Sean?

If you don't like it, tell the 11 cannon broadside :)
When its moderated, that is the finished ship. I may be adding a few more pictures later, but thats mostly what you'll get it. If you have any more advice, please let me know, like I said, last time I built an MOC was about 2 years ago, and I haven't done the pirate before (although I always have been a fan of the theme)
God Bless, Sean

However, I definitely enjoy all of the feedback and am taking it into account. I do want to see how well this looks with the one deck removed, and since that would make it easier to also add a midsection, i may try that as well and have a longer, lighter sister ship of sorts. Did anyone have anything else they'd think would be a cool change?
I also have thought about doing a smaller ship first, or starting a port, but the latter would take a slight bit longer.
By the way, I assume this has been entered in our pirate theme challenge?

It sounds like you've got some inspiration for future MOCs, it'll be interesting to see what you come up with.

Are you going to go ahead and do this?

Once that is done and I get about 4 pictures, I'll do those modifications.

Add sails then take pictures. Providing you can attach them using a system in which they're easily removable. Or if you're using paper you could just make quick temporary sails for the pictures just to see how they look.
This way you'll know what it looks like both ways.

With the sails I don't think the upper deck looks all that bad, however the ship still looks too short and is in definite need of lengthening. I assume that lengthening the ship will also balance its height better so maybe the upper can work really well. But we all know what assumption is!

Other than that I'd say if its possible just make a few changes at a time so we can observe the "evolution" of the design. So go make your propose changes, take and post pics, then we'll give you feedback so you can decide what you want to do next.
