Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Ship

can't have a pirate ship ride with out a pirate ship!

just build from the pictures, not hard. every other pictures is the pieces you will add on and every two pictures is a picture with the pieces added on.

Step 2: Base

this is the base, works well, provides lots of stability(the main reason to have a base).

Step 3: Hook Up Motor and Gear Setup

this is the part that makes the entire thing work. the motor turns a gear that hits another gear to make the ship move.

Step 4: Put the Ship On

last step, just put the ship on and turn on the motor.

Step 5: Have Fun

well, I hope you like it, its a little break from all the weapons.

um, not to much to say now, just please post critical comments only, also, please do not try to start a fight about it being stupid because it is K'Nex. ALL SPAM WILL BE FLAGGED AND DELETED, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Step 6: Some Things I Have Made...

rifle

true semi-auto rbgs

K'Nex robot

and, should i post this crossbow(picture 7)? it gets around 20 feet of range. i have changed some things sense the picture not nothing to big, i will get a updated picture soon. the crossbow uses a ratchet system to hold lots of power. i am working on the bow to make it hold more power,

    I live in Alabama. At Alabama Adventure, they have a big pirate ship ride kinda just like that. It scared the crap outta me when I was 7, 8, or 9.

    I don't really get how this works. Does it go back and forth or does it go all the way around the axle?

    I liked the design, and how it works. I was wanting to give it a five star rating, put the motor would jam every time it was going to make it swing.
