Filming The Pirates of the Caribbean

Okay here are the photos with a bit of introduction as we go along. Now while we are sure that many of you are looking for photos of the celebrities,

The Flying Dutchman must be towed. It has no motor. The rudder is welded in place. It was made so it could be steered with the rudder but it was decided to weld it stationary.

The Masts were designed on the Dauntless so that they can be removed from the hull. They go down into the deck and are held by "collars" below decks. If you look at the yard arms you will see that they too can be unbolted from the vertical masts. The masts are approximately 25 feet and 35 feet off the deck ( the Aft, rear Mast is taller). The idea is that the yard arms would allow for the rigging to be "hung" as if it was on a 40 plus foot mast.

They modify the Plate by adding or subtracting images.
