Sturdy, rugged, fast - The Ol' Pelican is an old fishing vessel the pirates Clint and Longsocks rely on for smaller expeditions as well as the odd fishing trip. Being a pirate, Clint has equiped the boat with two swivel guns, leading to the Ol' Pelican packing more of a punch than one might expect.

Fantastic little boat ship! :pir-triumph:

Part of the 'Being Pirates II', or a completely separate build?

 

Thank you! Yes, it will be part of Being Pirates II, I built a slightly different version as well so as to have a number of vessels.

Thank you NOD! Yes, it's a technique I wanted to try out. I attached tiles to bent hoses with clips to achieve the rounding.

Thank yee, but I can't take all the credit for writing since our beloved Governor @Mister Phes somehow always finds time and energy to improve my poor grammar and add that fine final polish to every article. I would be lost at sea without him. :pir-triumph:

I'm glad you enjoyed the blog-post, and hopefully it will bring more viewers to you channel. :pir-huzzah2:
