The Mystery of the Brigantine Rebecca

Once upon a time …
 I built a model ship.

It was called

Aye!
And it looked something like this:

Brigantine:
Definition: A two-masted sailing vessel, square-rigged on the foremast and having a fore-and-aft mainsail with square upper sails.

It perfectly fit my idea of a Pirate Ship:
Sleek and lean; fast and maneuverable – with sting.

She was a beauty.

My own Model was mere plastic, but she looked just fine.My faulty memory recalled this as belonging to Captain Kidd.
But my recent research finds is was a ship owned by perhaps the most notorious Pirate who ever lived: Edward Low.
Shiver me Timbers!

In any event, I’m now looking for this model again.
No luck so far.
If I do find it, I’ll post an update.

The Wind in the Willows

Toad, Mole, Rat, and Badger prepare for battle.

Have at them Lads!

Me thinks maybe there be a little pirate in all of us!
