I don't remember if the number of guns was mentioned in the movie. If not, it might be mentioned in the extras on the DVD. Does anyone know off hand?

As I get ready to paint up my Figurehead 1:2400 ships my sons are adamant that the first up must be the Black Pearl... I want to make sure I use the right model.

Looks like 16-18 guns to me. Maybe 20 at a push. You can glimpse a part of the plans and also the mock-up they used for filming on the extras DVD, but neither shows the lower part of the stern, which they never actually built on the mock-up!

I saw a clip of the upcoming movie PoTC: On Stranger Tides and noticed that Barbossa's ship (the Surprise in disguise) is flying the 1801 jack. :? :roll:

Yes, Surprise/Rose is in the new PoTC movie as a navy ship: Local Ship Sails With 'Pirates' In New Film

News to me!! Thanks for posting it. Kind of scary... they just got her all de-Hollywoodized & all the crap off the rigging & so on not so very long ago... but it looks like they didn't do any rebuilding this time. Yay.
I hope the movie is better than the middle two... :roll:

Oh yeah... and this is the kind of thing that keeps me as a writer wondering how many MORE Little Details I need to check, because as obscure as some of the details will be to most of the readers (or viewers), there's always someone somewhere who will know it's WRONG!!!
I know you people are out there.... :wink:

I imagine the museum had restrictions in place. I can ask Brad if any modifications were made, but I can't remember him mentioning any.

I only saw the first one. I wasn't motivated enough to see the middle two.

Interesting to see what they can do with the CGI. The clips that have been released show scenes filmed along one of the coastlines here on Oahu and things have definitely been added to the area. :D

....from today's online Daily Mail about the women pirates.

I realise Mary Bonney and Anne Read have cropped up before in this thread

The review linked in the above article is pretty harsh!
I don't think I'll be heading for the theatre... I might watch it on tv...
Hollywood has terminal Sequelitis.

Speaking of women pirates, maybe this is the wrong thread, but, if you read many things about women at sea it becomes apparent the authors are all quoting either each other or the same material, & I've seen a couple of comments to the effect that "there are anecdotal references to a female French privateer captain" in the late 1700s. But these comments are worded pretty much the same & the authors didn't appear to have any other info. Anyone know anything? I'm curious.

Ooo...ouch! I have a passing interest in it because of my very brief and negligible involvement and the fact it was filmed here. However, it's not enough to motivate me to stir myself to get to a theater.

Not that I can remember off hand. Have you looked at David Cordingly's book?

Yes, that was one of the ones with one of the similar quotes.
What was your "brief & negligible involvement"?
