Monezterell shipyards proudly presents: The Barquentine El Rubi. Built in the shipyards of Elysabethtown, she has been sitting in ordinary (= no masts, no sails, no rigging) for far to long. It is finally time to set her off to her own journey. Well, lets keep our talkin' short let this ship go swim! ____ Just these two pictures for now, I'm sorry, I had so much to take pictures of today. This ship has been sitting on my desk for several months without sails, which was annoying me for long enough. You may notice a strong similarity to the Esmeralda; these ships were started at the same time: Will be licensed as a 4T2 as it seems to be a little bit to small for a 5T. As it could house up to 12 guns it could be refitted to be a 4A as well.
The Monezterrel shipyards have been busy again - and they still are. To help out our expanding cargo needs, we have decided to order a Barque (and some more ships, but those aren't done just jet). It has the capacity to carry 14 guns and a lot more space for cargo. But let's keep this short for once - you just wanna see what it looks like, don't ya? _______________ Wow, this one took a while. Not because it was difficult, instead because I'm in the middle of exams and have 2 more ships in WIP. Don't ask how I have connected the sails, its magic (they fall off if you breathe). First, before anyone notices: This ship is heavily (!) inspired by the Christine, a Barquentine, by Sebeus I. As I like to try out different techniques for building ships I had to try out his technique too - and why not on a ship of the supposedly perfect length of 4 midsections? Off course I made quite some changes - the stern, which I originally wasn't too excited about, has been done very differently, and the masts, which were just the standard ones, were done completely different. So, let's just see the pictures: So many sails. 21 sails total on this ship, luckily the 10 square sails could be rolled up. A bit more detailed view of this side - as usual on my ships a lot is going on. Btw, as this is a ship inspired by Sebeus the Capstan had to work - what else:D Picture of the side of the bow. As you can see there aren't many places to hide on a ship this size - you have to get creative then. Picture of the stern, with the rowboat hung up. That shark was irritating as it kept rotating the whole time. And a last one, the rowboat is in the water and the shark has rotated a bit further. Imagine a the name Esmeralda on that dark tan tile. This Barque will be licensed as a class 5T; it is commanded by Captain Hector Ordoneź.
(from the festival website) I had went to Port Washington, Wisconsin's Maritime Heritage Festival, and took a self-guided tour of the Tall Ship Peacemaker. I figured I would post pictures of my tour to provide inspiration for more realistic MOCs that we construct. The vessel is a Barquentine Rigged vessel, and its interior construction is apparently based upon the Cutty Shark. Below are specifications of this vessel provided by the website for this vessel. Specifications Sparred length 158 feet Length Overall (LOA) 124 feet Length at Waterline (LWL) 104 feet Rig Height 123 feet Beam 33 feet Draft 14 feet Hull Structure Ipe ("Ironwood") Displacement 400 T Registration Georgia (USA) Rig Barquentine Sail Area 10,600 Square Feet Builder Maccarini Shipyard Navegantes, SC, Brazil Keel Laid 1986 Launched 1989 Here are some overview pictures of the vessel docked at Port Washington: Some images of the lower quarter deck. My three year old was with me with her stuffed parrot, which she thought was a good idea to bring to a pirate ship. Here are some images of the upper quarter deck. Here are some pictures of the rigging and sails Here's the helm, which is found inside a structure on the upper quarter deck In the last thumbnail just above, my daughter was heading to the captain's quarters. It's accessed from the lower quarter deck and is located at the stern. It contains all modern furnishings. Here are some pictures of the bow. And here's a close up of the bell. It's located on the fore/main mast. Well sums up my tour of the vessel, and none of you have to pay $6 per person for admittance.
