Guest Post
Of the tall ships mentioned in Second on the Right, the Mistral Thief and the Jolly Roger are the two that have top billing.

Jolly Roger
Though smaller than a galleon, the brig is no less of a ship. The Jolly Roger, sails with two square-rigged masts (fore and main). Captain Benedict notes the brig hold more capability for speed and maneuverability. Outgunned compared with the Mistral Thief, the Jolly Roger holds roughly fifteen cannons and two swivel guns. The number of sails on the Jolly Roger is incredible. Besides the two main masts (fore and main), there are also job sails, a square mainsail, topsail, topgallant and royals. Due to the number of sails, as well as cannons, the Jolly Roger requires a large crew (often close to a hundred men). Captain Hooks quarters are located at the aft of the ship, beneath the helm.

The history of the Jolly Roger, prior to the take over, is unclear. It is possible the Jolly Roger was simply a merchant vessel; however, considering how well shes equipped, some believe she had been property of the Royal Navy.
Mistral Thief
Captain Benedicts ship is what is typically depicted of pirate vessels, a galleon ship. With a dark hull and sails, the ship is equipped with over thirty cannons (a row on deck and a row below deck). The Mistral Thief holds three masts (fore, mizzen and main). The large sails adds for more power and speed, though the size of the hull makes her more cumbersome to maneuver. Captain Benedicts quarters are located at the aft of the ship, beneath the helm.
