    With the upcoming new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell no Tales, I thought I might as well get into the PotC mood and present you with my version of the iconic Flying Dutchman.

    The ship design is different to my usual ship-of-the-line style, as this ship truly is a pirate ship in all of its glory. I have tried to find some sort of deck plans and sail plans on the internet, however this being a fictional ship, its very hard to come by the designs and dimensions they used for the Flying Dutchman in the movies. The sails are based off the movies, but the shape of the hull is based off a few other ships from around that era that existed in real life as Spanish and French galleons of the 17th century.

    Quick overview of the Flying Dutchman (lore):
    The Flying Dutchman was an infamous supernatural ghost ship. Originally, the Dutchman held the sacred task of collecting all the poor souls who dies at sea and ferrying them to the afterlife. During the Age of Piracy, the Dutchman would become a ship geared by many across the seven seas.

    According to the legends and lore, the Flying Dutchman was given to Davy Jones by his love, the sea goddess Calypso, who gave Jones the duty of ferrying the souls who died at sea into the next world. After ten years, Jones would be free to come ashore to be wit Calypso. But when ever Davy Jones came ashore, Calypso was nowhere to be found. This ultimately resulted in Jones carving out his own heart,  and locking it in the Dead Man’s Chest. Jones abandoned his duty, instead wreaking havoc on the seas and unleashing the Kraken upon many vessels. He also preyed on wayward sailors lost at sea who wished to avoid death and final judgement, press-ganging them into his crew, eventually becoming part of the Dutchman itself.
