Captain Mesabi and a shipwright stood in front of the meager headquarters for Mesabi's new trade corporation. A seagull landed on a chest and began crying.

"It appears everything is in order. Do you have the payment?" The shipwright said.

"Of course. I understand the ship will be here shortly." Captain Mesabi said. He handed the Shipwright a couple of Dubloons.

"Yes, of course. I'm a bit perplexed by your choice of a name. Can you explain it to me?" The Shipwright asked

"Bad Blood is the kind of name that lets the enemy know that you're already ready for a fight." Captain Mesabi replied. "I know the new world is mostly full of pirates, but I'd love to get in a scuffle with an Oleon vessel."

"I don't think the enemy knows the name of the ship when they attack."

"Huh," said Captain Mesabi

In the Distance, a ship was being rowed into port. It's hull was a bright crimson

The ship was rowed into the dock. Captain Mesabi beamed in happiness.

The crew got off, and began loading cargo onto the ship

"Smooth sailing Captain!" The shipwright yelled. The Voyage was beginning

Thanks for reading. C&C appreciated I will be registering this vessel as a Class 2 WR, it has 4 guns and five crew, If anyone has a better idea let me know. I also would like some advice for a good trade route. Or if I should join a convoy.

I like that you have included your office in the storyline for the ship introduction. On the ship, I really like those small cannons and your assorted crew. I would have liked to see the oars displayed, since they were mentioned, but that doesn't make or break the build. 
In regard to trade route, I definitely recommend joining a convoy. Pirates and sea rats are plentiful in the waters and a good escort is neccessary to a good trade run. Corrington has several convoys and I have asked that you get added to the private chat in regard to that. (Sorry I don't have the authority to add someone.) I hope you have smooth sailing!

I have sent the bad blood on a trade run through the 2 ports in sector 8. Wish me luck!

Nice first ship, Mesabi - good to see you brave the waves of the brick seas. I think you've got the general shape right, and your cannons are looking nice. The hull is a little blocky, but I like how you went for a brick built hull for your first ship. You may of course be limited by your choice of bricks, but for your next ship, I would suggest going for a smoother look. You can find plenty of inspiration in these forums, for instance in this index: Ships of BoBS. There you should be able to find plenty of different techniques, even if the index haven't been updated recently, due to the many ships of BOBS! :pir_tong2: You can also look into this thread for tips and tricks, or for feedback on a WIP: Shipwrights Guild Hall:pir-blush:

Good luck! :pir-grin: For the next MRCA, don't go around telling everyone about your route - we have many notorious pirates amongst us! :pir-grin: (Also, Corrington has convoys you can join)
