The first production from the yards of Port Olympic, The Olympic Ship Corinthian (named after the Admiral's birthplace) became the flagship of the...well...soon-to-be Olympic fleet. The Admiral, Zale Alexander, was pleased with the firepower of the ship yet the agility the shorter style allowed, though at a slight lack for speed.
Boasting an 11 cannon broadside, the ship is more than capable of filling its current role of patrol, as it is the size of both the famed Black Seas Barracuda and Skull's Eye Schooner. When the time comes, it will be very fit for it's diplomatic (to a point) roll of sailing around and showing off itself to other nations in the neighboring waters.
This boat deserves more attention on the site!
You should add some more pictures of the ship and its interior!

Seaaaaan!!! Thank Goodness- The USS CORINTHIAN! Finnaly! I saw this ship in my school library, welded a 3' frame w/ strip planks & won 1st place, & could never find Her listed anymore anywhere again ever, & now I have a LEGO account. She has Alluded me for decades alas till now O'Seano. "Behold, The Fair Schooner 'Corinthian'". (did i miss something?). Swabbing the deck awaiting yer reply.
Very good, however there is one major flaw that would end this ship straight away against another ship. You only have guns along the left side, this leaves the back, front and right side vulnerable to a pounding. Two 6 gun schooners could beat this girl, pirates would seize her hands down. Maybe you should design with a more military thought in mind on your next venture. Otherwise still a very respectable ship. Well done.
well... its a good ship, but the bow is blockly as someone else said, doesnt really fit the ship... but i like the over all design, its a good build and a nice moc, just could use some fine tuning thats all
I like the color scheme on this ship... Shes a little to short to have two gun decks... you should keep the color scheme, and lengthen her a bit... mabe put some tumble home in her... keep a look out for my fleet... 7 in all... posting tomorrow..
