To celebrate the fact that I Rodsh Derr have become a member of the Free Traders Association, I've build them a ship. I gave command to Captain Bennet, a former mate of mine for whom this is his first ship as a captain. I present the FTA Achernar The FTA Achernar has been specially designed to transport big rum barrels, her mainsail boom has been strenghtend so she can load and discharge the barrels herself in any port, and her hatches enlarged. --- On the mainmast you see the Sea-Rats colours On the mizzenmast you'll find the banner of the FTA and on the stern the personal flag of Rodsh Derr, which doesn't have to mean he is onboard though.
The barque Narwal, the ship of Captain Rodsh Derr: Barque Narwal 4 by Bart, on Flickr Barque Narwal by Bart, on Flickr Barque Narwal 2 by Bart, on Flickr Barque Narwal 3 by Bart, on Flickr A single deck frigate, with a barque rig. Armed with 12 cannons on the gun deck each side, the six centre guns are the big Lego pieces and the six on the fore and aft are smaller brick build. (I''m not really sure wat the common lore is fore the size of guns, were the Lego ones 32 pounds? and brick build 16, or was it 16 and 8?) And in addition to that six swivels on the stern and two swivels and two carronades on the forecastle. You see her here under the command of Cathy Derr, normally the first mate, as Rodsh is off on an adventure. The Narwal has just finished careening on a beach near King's Harbour and are no underway chasing a rumour Cathy picked up during the Ball. This ship grew out of the cabin I build as an approach to the Ball, I first intended to build only a side and use it as a decor in my AMRCA opening post, but it turned into a full ship by accident.
