This is my small trading ship based upon the design from set 6277 but with major differences. The Red Griffin is Mastered by Captain Tobias and his small crew consists of his wife and brother. They make regular runs between the various harbours of the island chain of the Middle Antilles and Tobias considers the larger island of New Yateley his homeport, mostly because of the great fortress that defends the harbour there means his ship'll be safe from pirates. They will transport almost any cargo that will make a profit but they charge more when gunpowder is that cargo.
The Red Griffin has no armament as such being a trading vessel. She does though carry a musket for dealing with sharks and a pistol and cutlass are stowed at the stern for cutting lines in emergencies. She can carry cargo of 8 barrels or five chests. She can also carry 12 passengers when acting as a lighter for ships too large to make port.
