The Black Pearl is 109 feet long with a beam of 28 feet. Originally the East Indian Trading Company galleon The Wicked Wrench, she was burned and sunk, when Jack Sparrow refused to transport slaves for Culter Beckett. When Davy Jones raises her for Jack, he wants Jacks soul in return 13 years later. Jack recruits up to 200 crew members including William "Bootstrap Bill" Turner and Hector Barbossa. After 3 years Barbossa mutinies against Jack and Bill Turner is sent to the the locker for speaking out against Barbossa. 10 years later, Jack tricks Bills son, Will Turner into helping him get the Pearl back from his former, now cursed, crew. With Will's help he succeeds. Already been Captain Jack Sparrow for 13 years, Davy Jones wants Jack for 100 years of service aboard The Flying Dutchman. Refusing Jack runs, but in the end, he and the Pearl are sent to Davy Jones Locker. But Will Turner, Hector Barbossa, and Elizebeth Swann save him and the Pearl. And in the end, the Pearl defeats Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman. Unfortunately, while Mr. Gibbs, Jacks first mate, is sleeping, and Jack is entertaining two floozies, Barbossa steals the Black Pearl again and Jack has to go aftir her all over again in a small Dinghy.

how much did this cost to build, because i really like it :)
Most of the pieces came from a goof-up between my parents and my Aunt&Uncle where I got 2 Black-Seas Barracuda ships 4 X-Mas, Yay! And it took me about 3yrs b/c I would add on, then keep it like that, then add on again and keep it like that, until I got the version I have today. I would add on, cuz every now and then, I would come across pics that showed details I hadn't noticed before.
COOL! I love it! The only thing is, the cabin sticks out a little, I would suggest making it curve up, and then it would "fit" with the boat more, The way it is it seems to stick out. Love the sails! Thanks for the comment on my Blackbeard's Revenge! Could you check out my Imperial ship, HMS Ireland? PCE OUT
