*A trailer.(we used our 27 foot burningman trailer)
*A 7-10 foot board(2x4,4x4,2x6 etc)(we used reclaimed fence post)
*4-9 used white sheets( some of ours were off color, so we bleached them over night in a bucket of bleach and water)
*Stapler and lots o staples
*6 large clamps
*6 bungee cords
*2 trees that the trailer can be positioned in the middle of
*6-10 large rocks/bricks
*as many black lights as you can find!....or at least 3 large ones
Spray paint black,brown
Screws and power drill
misc 2x4 and scraps of 2x4(wood pile stuff)
misc. halloween/pirate stuff for decor
Step 1: Securing the bow
We used Bungee cords to secure the plank of wood to the front tongue.
Make sure to position wood at a slight angle for the bow of the ship.
If this doesn't feel secure possibly use some bailing wire as well till its totally secure.
If building larger bow, use a couple of 2x4 scraps screwed together, on either side of tongue, for more stability.
Step 2: Shaping the ship
Repeating a second line approximately 7-10 inchs below.
**At this point if you want a high front, you can use scrap 2x4 or anything(pvc?) pieces to make front of trailer higher then back of trailer.
This is where you will tie off rope instead.
Hint: we used some pvc squares from another project that didnt pan out. Not neccesary but was handy.
