"WRECK OF THE HESPERUS"
It was the schooner Hesperus,
That sailed the wintery sea;
And the skipper had taken his little daughter,
To bear him company...
...At daybreak, on the bleak sea-beach,
A fisherman stood aghast,
To see the form of a maiden fair,
Lashed close to a drifting mast.
The salt sea was frozen on her breast,
The salt tears in her eyes;
And he saw her hair, like the brown sea-weed,
On the billows fall and rise.
Such was the wreck of the Hesperus,
In the midnight and the snow!
Christ save us all from a death like this,
On the reef of Norman's Woe!

For many months now a team of dedicated volunteers have been working within The Shipyard to produce the content which appears daily on the frontpage of Classic-Pirates.com.
"The Shipyard?" you ask? The Shipyard is a hidden VIP sub-forum within the LEGO Pirates Forum where volunteers work on special projects.
We want to begin rewarding our volunteers for their contributions so we're implementing a ranking system which enables them to receive promotions for the quality and quantity of their contributions. Each rank has it's own tag and special priveleges which increase with each rank. There will also be contests exclusive to The Shipyard so only those who are part of the Ranking System will be able to participate.
Get yourself to the LEGO Pirates Forum to learn more
about the NEW Shipyard Ranking System!

Bonaparte has found pictures of this magnificent Lego pirate battleship in the Flickr gallery of a user called funkg177. After some investigation it seems to be the Black pearl, build by Brian Heins who also was the provider of the Pirates sets in the exhibition in Taiwan where these pictures were taken!
Even the BSB looks tiny compared to this giant...Brian stopped counting bricks at 150,000, and the ship was recently valued at an amazing 15,000 USD !

Recently, the Classic-Pirates.com forum has become quite cluttered with topics, and MOCs haven't been able to get their fair share of the first page spotlight. So, after much discussion, the Classic-Pirates.com Staff have decided to create a new subforum to showcase all of your MOCs! So now you can post your MOCs and MODs in this new subforum and all other pirate discussion can be made in the main pirate forum. So what are you waiting for?
Head on over to our new and exciting subforum, then voice your thoughts in the pirate forum!

- Captain Pete never backed away from a challenge
...but admittedly had thought that "Fish Monster Bay" was just another one of those over-dramatisations he'd come to expect from 16th Century maps!

Geisha was originally designed by Wes for use in Evil Stevie's Pirate Game (a class 3 ship), but this beautiful MOC is now (re)presented on the Classic Pirates forum!
A Schooner-Class ship.
Wes: Geisha's name was inspired by Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha, a book I own that was made into a movie. It also relates to the white color of the ship's hull (think white facepaint).
Go over to discuss Wes' Geisha in the Pirates forum.
