I remembered when I was a kid and LEGO had the pirate sets that were soo cool! I haven't seen a pirate set in a long time and my little boy really loves pirates, so we made our own pirate stuff.
Step 1: Ship
The main deck swings open to the brig and crew sleeping areas. The steering platform opens to the captains quarters.
Step 2: Desert Island
I used a regular sand colored base platform and put flat blue pieces on it to make the shape I wanted.
Step 3: Pirate Fort
The pirate fort is made using the large rocks for underwater sets and the winch for lifting cargo.
