Introduction: "the Black Pearl"

Picture of "the Black Pearl"

my family and I created a decent replica of the Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl for Halloween 2010, had well over 1000 visits in the 5 hours we were giving out candy and had a lot of fun, working cannons which i have an instructable for and lights, 3 sails, a captains quarters, davy jones, jack sparrow, all the works. The night was truly awesome

Amazing, Do you have any video? Great stuff.

thanks! unfortunately no video tho =( the only night it would of been worth filming would of been Halloween night but we just get too busy and there's no time to pull out a camera haha, all the night shots were taken the following night

I appreciate that, its a really nice job on the hat though, it actually looks authentic, way more than the one at Disneyland

Looks good. How long did the construction take?

we worked on it for about 4 weekends, it was hard to work during the week due to an actual job, those always get in the way=) but for the whole week before Halloween it was from 5 to 10 every night trying to finish, all in all it was probably somewhere around 60 to 70 hours of work put together
