I like how the builder used bricks/LEGO elements for many of the things most builders would attempt to use non-LEGO elements for, like the sails or the rigging between the masts (technic axels!).
It definitely looks like it could be Drake's galleon too. I heard a certain “Grand Master” say he wished there were more galleons up on the site. I guess he got his wish!
Oh yeah, and look for this ship to be blogged soon!
See these MOCs and MORE in the Guilds of Historica!

A ship is floating in the harbour now,
The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;
There is a path on the sea's azure floor,
No keel has ever ploughed that path before

It looks quit einteresting to me, clearly resembling a 16th century ship and with a very puristic rigging (or maybe he was just lazy ).
I do like the colourscheme howerver there ar many things seriously wrong with the stern: it sides don't slope which makes it too wide at the top and there are not even windows!

The rigging is unusual with the technic parts.
But great find

We really are having an influx of galleons here recently, I swear I saw none in my year of lurking.
The whole ship is amazing, the colorscheme is just beautiful.
I love how "alive" this looks, I don't know if that makes any sense but I can just imagine the figs going to sea in it. Sometimes I wish I were a minifig, this is one of those times.
Only thing I don't like is the technic axles for rigging, but that's a small complaint.
Thanks for posting.
