It's fantastic. I'd move right in, if I had the means, the pirates, and the skill.

Re: Pirate ship for sale

It is made of "fine lumber" and "sheathing impregnated by hot blood from oxen" so how can you go wrong?

Re: Pirate ship for sale

The "six bronze functional cannons" could sure come in handy if someone in the anchorage gets a little noisy.

Re: Pirate ship for sale

I wasn't interested in it until I saw that it had bathrooms. BATHROOMS! Oh, it has been so long since I have had a bathroom. All I got are stinky old heads.

Hel Mel, looks like its time to cancel that C445 order! J will definitely help you sail that one around!!

Re: Pirate ship for sale

All I need is a parrot and an eyepatch, and maybe $675,000.00 and I could recruit some pirates, especially since it has bathrooms. I am thinking as tall as it is I might not even need the sails up, the wind would push that huge stern

I think it might be a bit much to single hand though.

Re: Pirate ship for sale

The blood of Oxen was a very common varnish and sealant used on wood, earthen floors, and other things in centuries gone by. This sealant would give the wood a very beautiful burnt orange to deep red color that would fade over time to a yellowish golden orange, like some of the old violins.

Quote:
Violin Varnish:

Violin varnishing is a multi-step process involving some or all of the following: primer, sealer, ground, color coats, and clear topcoat. Some systems use a drying oil varnish as described below, while others use spirit (or solvent) varnish. Touchup in repair or restoration is only done with spirit varnish.
Drying oil such as walnut oil or linseed oil may be used in combination with amber, copal, rosin or other resins. Traditionally the oil is prepared by cooking or exposure to air and sunlight, but modern "stand oil" is prepared by heating oil at high temperature without oxygen. The refined resin is sometimes available as a translucent solid and is then "run" by cooking or literally melting it in a pot over heat without solvents. The thickened oil and prepared resin are then cooked together and thinned with turpentine (away from open flame) into a brushable solution. The ingredients and processes of violin varnish are very diverse, with some highly regarded old examples showing defects (e.g. cracking, crazing) associated with incompatible varnish components.
Some violin finishing systems use vernice bianca (egg white and gum arabic) as a sealer or ground. There is also evidence that finely powdered minerals, possibly volcanic ash, were used in some grounds. Some violins made in the late 1700s, used Oxen's blood to create a very deep red coloration. Today this varnish would have faded and currently be a very warm, dark orange.
