All right, I did some capstans
Starting with Foremast Jack's design, I didn't have enough of the right parts to make a complete one though.
(turned out that 2 technic link pieces is all I have)
Unfortunatly it increased size does make life aboard a bit more complicated
I tried fitting a capstan from another wip ship on the spot.
It's a functional alternative but I don't like the color mash here, the dark brown reacts aggressively with the light grey so I might stick to my original for now. It was very interesting though.
Foremast Jack, your design is still very nice but I guess it will be more practical on a larger ship, a ship-of-the-line perhaps, one day I'll build one
Besides the kraken hammer I also tried some new things for the lower cannon ports,
for now the best I could do was this:
I'll have to get more parts to apply these to the ship, I'm out of inverted slopes and I'm short on seaweed pieces (need 13).
But I feel good about this design, see how the seaweed nicely curves over the eyes.
Much better than my previous Idea.
Oh and I also intend to switch colors of the vertical tiles, I want them in dark grey but to do that I need atleast 10 of those and I only have 2
