Yay pirate words!!
You'll probably will recognize Galleons from any pirate movie. They were common in the 18th and 19th century. I wondered how people could tell these a part from other ships, so I googled Galleons and found this on Wikipedia:
The most distinguishing features of the galleon include the long beak, the lateen-rigged mizzenmasts, and the square gallery at the stern off the captain's cabin. In larger galleons, a fourth mast was added, usually a lateen-rigged mizzen, called the bonaventure mizzen.
Aren't some of those names funny?!? You can also go to the wiki page for Galleons to see a list of some famous ones! (Ex....A ship called Vasa that inspired the design for the Flying Dutchman!).
Some of my ships are called The Kindrick, The Cathal, and The Emerald. You see pirates fly black sails, but in my books, I thought that was stupid cause that just says you're a pirate run!! So I don't do that. haha.
|Many of my pirates use Flintlock pistols.|
|This is a swivel cannon. It's super fun. LOL.|
In conjunction with scatter projectiles, these are super cool. I watched a youtube video to make sure what I wanted to happen could actually happen. That's the magic of youtube!
